ROCKLAND - A Rockland football coach has been sentenced to five years in prison on drug charges.

Authorities say 50-year-old Theodore Holmes of Middletown doubled as a heroin dealer while coaching the Ramapo-Spring Valley Pop Warner football team.

Holmes was arrested last summer for his involvement in a heroin-trafficking ring spanning Rockland and Orange counties.

The former coach pleaded guilty to possessing heroin while driving one of his team's players.

In addition to his imprisonment, Holmes also received five years of probation.
