DES MOINES, Iowa — A former Lincoln High School football coach is looking for a plea deal.

Jason Storm is accused of verbally assaulting a referee following a questionable no-call in a game last October – involving his son. Police say he threatened to kill the official and charged him with first-degree harassment.

Storm resigned as a coach a few days after the incident.

Court records show Storm is now asking the judge to accept a guilty plea for second-degree harassment, in exchange for a deferred judgment and probation.

The judge has not yet ruled on the petition
