San Miguel man accused in shooting suspended of volunteer coaching duties at Paso high school

The San Miguel man who allegedly shot a pregnant Paso Robles woman just before midnight Friday served as an assistant football coach at Paso Robles High School on a volunteer basis, but not as an employee, school officials confirmed Tuesday.

All volunteers are screened, district spokeswoman Anne Quinn said.

Steven Smith, 26, is suspended from his "voluntary association with students and he will not continue to act as a volunteer football coach at Paso Robles High School unless he is found innocent in a court of law," Quinn said.

Smith pleaded not guilty today to two counts of felony attempted murder and one count of first-degree burglary, officials said.
