ENFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

A high school basketball coach in Enfield busted in a prostitution sting has stepped down.

John Norris, 53, was arrested Valentine's Day along with nearly a dozen other men, police said. The arrests were part of a sting dubbed "Operation Cupid" at a Windsor Locks motel.

Norris was an assistant junior varsity basketball coach at Enrico Fermi High School.

"I think he should be accountable for his actions," said Jennifer Ryan, a mother. "They are supposed to be role models for our kids who desperately need it."

Police said the bust was set up after they received a number of complaints about prostitution at motels on Route 75 in Windsor Locks.

They said they first placed an advertisement online and had an undercover officer meet the clients at a motel.

Eleven men were charged, including Norris and a police officer in Springfield, MA.

"I don't think this should be swept under the rug," said Ashley Stachelek, a junior at Enrico Fermi High School.

Police said they are still investigating the case.
