ROSEVILLE, Mich. (AP) - Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Tommie Boyd has been charged with criminal sexual conduct after authorities say the high school track coach had sexual contact with a teenage student.

The 38-year-old was arraigned Thursday in 39th District Court in Roseville. The charges are in two cases and a preliminary hearing for both is Feb. 3.

Boyd was being held in the Macomb County Jail.

Defense lawyer Todd Flood says he looks forward to vindicating Boyd.

Boyd played for the Lions in 1997 and 1998. Police say he was a substitute teacher for Fraser Public Schools.

Police say a relationship with the girl began in 2007 when she was a 14-year-old freshman at Fraser High School and continued into 2009.
