A former Duluth youth basketball coach already serving time for criminal sexual conduct has pleaded guilty to another charge.

Wendell Anthony Greene pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct on Monday. Prosecutor Rebekka Stumme said Greene admitted to having sex with a 14-year-old girl when he coached her in the "Race for the Center Courts" program in 2010.

Greene was already serving 18 years for three counts of criminal sexual conduct, after being accused of having sexual contact with two elementary-age girls.

Greene's new sentencing is set for Sept. 15. Stumme said his new sentence will likely be 25 and a half years total.
