Coach Ted Ginn to open charter school

CLEVELAND - A successful Cleveland high school football coach plans to open a taxpayer-supported charter high school in the fall for boys at risk because of academic, personal or family problems.

Coach Ted Ginn of Glenville High School hopes to file paperwork with the state this week to open the Ginn Academy. The coach is the father of Ohio State receiver Ted Ginn Jr.

Plans call for Ginn Academy to open this fall in a former factory with 150 freshmen and sophomores.

Ginn says that he wants to stay with Glenville High while sponsoring the academy.
