PHOENIX (AP) -- A private track and field coach charged with sex crimes after police discovered explicit messages between him and a teenage girl has pleaded guilty in the case.
 
Maricopa County court officials say Bo Reed pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of sexual conduct with a minor and two counts of attempted sexual conduct with a minor. He's set to be sentenced on Jan. 21.
 
Phoenix police arrested Reed in March after the messages were found on the girl's Facebook account. Authorities said he coached the girl for three years.
 
Reed is a former Northern Arizona University runner who held distance training camps in Flagstaff. He also coached runners at Scottsdale Community College and other schools.
