EXETER — A former head coach of the Wyoming Area High School’s volleyball team, who was charged earlier in September with corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor, is facing additional charges.

According to court documents, on Friday, Nicholas Diaco was charged with two more similar charges and was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Joseph Carmody.

The document alleged the crime had occurred on Aug. 1.

Diaco, 26, was originally charged on Sept. 23 after Wyoming Area Principal Vito Quaglia contacted Exeter police, according to court records.

During their investigation, police searched the victim’s phone and found sexually explicit messages alleged to have come from Diaco.

Wyoming Area School District Solicitor Jarrett Ferentino said at that time district officials were in communication with law enforcement and were completely cooperating with the investigation.

Ferentino said immediately after learning about the allegations, the district had suspended Diaco and that he had subsequently resigned.

Diaco has also been suspended from his financial analyst position at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, as confirmed by a spokesperson earlier this month.

Diaco was released immediately on $2,500 unsecured bail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 9.
