(AP) A Los Angeles man has been criminally charged in connection with prank phone calls to professional and college coaches about jobs.


The Los Angeles County district attorney's office says 32-year-old Kenneth Edward Tarr was charged Tuesday with one felony count of eavesdropping for allegedly making illegal recordings of more than a half-dozen calls.


Tarr was arrested earlier this month and released on bail. A telephone listing for him could not be immediately located.


Prosecutors allege that Tarr pretended to be a representative of various teams and called a number of sports coaches to gauge their interest in taking jobs. Authorities say in at least one instance he offered the victim a coaching position.


Prosecutors say the targets were from the NBA, NFL, Major League Baseball and university football programs.
