PITTSBURGH - A former youth football coach was arrested last week on drug-related charges.

Authorities told Channel 11’s Renee Kaminski they pulled over 44-year-old Brian Lamont Malloy for careless driving last week in Duquesne. During the stop officers found a small baggie of cocaine, drug paraphernalia and $2,000 in cash in Malloy’s vehicle.

Malloy, who used to coach with the Steel Valley Midget Football Association, remains in the Allegheny County Jail.

Aaron Knight, the president of the popular football program that attracts kids from elementary to middle school, told Kaminski that Malloy is no longer part of the league.

“We don’t condone that kind of behavior,” Knight said.

Parents agreed with Knight, and said they don’t want Malloy around their kids.

“I have a son here and he plays football. So this has got me kind of worried now,” one parent said.

Authorities said other police departments in the Mon Valley have arrested Malloy on drug possession charges in the past.
