A former Tinley Park High School teacher accused of having sex with an underage female student is facing new charges involving the same girl, Orland Park police said Thursday.

Ryan Dolan, 29, already was facing aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges in Will County, stemming from a March 8 arrest in Tinley Park. Now, the former head wrestling coach has been charged with criminal sexual assault involving the same student in Orland Park, according to a press release.

The student was under age 18, police said.

Dolan was arrested and appeared before a Cook County judge on Wednesday, where his bail was set at $250,000, police said in the release.

Dolan, of Tinley Park, resigned from his positions at the school on March 11. He had been a faculty member since 2008 and taught history and was the varsity wrestling coach, the freshman football coach and a former sophomore softball coach.

Dolan was arrested on March 8 and had been suspended without pay.

He’s facing four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse from a position of trust and two counts of criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 18 in Will County.

Dolan’s next court hearing in Cook County is April 23, and in Will County on April 24.
