DETROIT (AP) -- Three Detroit high school football coaches have been relieved of their duties after district officials learned they failed to reveal felony convictions on job applications to work as noon hour aides.

The district said Monday in a release that personnel staff discovered the convictions.

The names of the coaches and details of their felony convictions weren't released.

They'd been coaching at Douglass High School.

Emergency financial manager Robert Bobb says the district "will always aggressively and forthrightly respond" to such issues.
