Club Wolverine‘s head coach Kelton Graham was fired today after being arrested on the suspicion of soliciting prostitution while in Omaha, Nebraska for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to one day in jail.
Graham was arrested about 10:40 pm at the AmericInn Hotel and Suites near the CenturyLink Center during an Omaha Police Department sting operation.
A total of 11 people are behind bars after the sting.
Omaha City Prosecutor Matt Kuhse told KMTV Action 3 News that operations like this won’t be tolerated in the city during the Trials.
“Part of it is to send a message that this kind of behavior is not going to be tolerated from people coming into town from Omaha for the swim trials or for the colleges World Series,” Kuhse said.
Graham took over as the head coach of Club Wolverine in 2011. He has been with the club for a total of ten years.
A message went out the the team earlier tonight saying that he had violated his contract terms and been terminated.
USA Swimming has told KMTV Action 3 News that they will follow their disciplinary process because of the arrest.
