WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. -

Centennial High School principal Dr. Frank Brown resigned from his position Tuesday amid allegations of improper sexual relations with a student while working at McGavock High School about ten years ago.

"I can't say he's guilty of anything at this point in time," Director of Williamson County Schools Dr. Mike Looney said. "What I do know is he's been accused of some actions in a system other than ours. He's offered his resignation and I've accepted it."

Dr. Looney also added to his knowledge no current students were involved in the alleged misconduct.

As students went back to class on Wednesday falling Fall Break, many were uncertain about what happened to their principal.

"I liked [Dr. Brown] and I got the general feeling that everyone likes him around the school," high school senior Durrell Sims said, adding, "He was a pretty good principal as far as I was concerned."

Dr. Brown began working in the Williamson County School District in 2007 as the assistant principal of Independence High School and later as principal at Heritage Middle School.

Brown became the principal at Centennial High School in 2010.

Officials said former Centennial assistant principal Sandra Joyner will fill the position.

School officials also told Nashville's News 2 they have turned over information regarding Brown to the Williamson County Sheriff's Department.

Sheriff's department officials told Nashville's News 2 they don't plan to investigate the matter further.

Parents were notified of Brown's resignation via phone calls Tuesday night.

Prior to his career in Williamson County, Brown was a teacher at La Vergne High School from 1994 to 1996.

Rutherford County Schools' spokesperson James Evans told Nashville's News 2 the district has no record of any complaints against him.
