An Alabama high school football coach accused of child molestation and trying to get the victim to lie to authorities investigating the incidents will make an initial court appearance Wednesday in Oxford, Miss.

Dwight Bowling is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court before Magistrate S. Allan Alexander.

The 55-year-old Bowling was head football coach for Sulligent, Ala., High School in Lamar County when he was arrested Sept. 17 on charges he repeatedly carried minors from Mississippi to Alabama for sex.

Bowling has been charged in federal court with one count of attempting to bribe a witness and four counts of coercing a minor into having sex.
