Ex-volleyball coach nabbed in Pa. online sex sting

Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett says a former girls' volleyball coach for a suburban Philadelphia school is among those arrested in an online sex sting. Corbett says 34-year-old H. Michael Villarose II of Plymouth Meeting sent a nude photo to an undercover agent posing as a 13-year-old girl and asked if she would perform a sex act.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia says Villarose passed the required criminal background checks and child abuse clearances before being hired as a coach at Kennedy-Kenrick Catholic High School in Norristown. He coached the girls' varsity volleyball team for the 2007-08 and 2008-09 school years. The archdiocese says it's not aware of any crimes committed by Villarose in his position as a coach.

Villarose's phone number is unlisted and it was unclear Wednesday if he had a lawyer.
