Former Sandia AD hired at Volcano Vista

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – New details about the former Sandia High School Athletic Director accused of planting a pot pipe in a coach’s office.

APS confirmed Thursday that Tom Knauber is now a social studies teacher at Volcano Vista High School.

The district removed him from Sandia High earlier this month, after a disciplinary hearing.

KRQE News 13 first told you about the scandal last month.

We learned Knauber allegedly planted a pot pipe in head boy’s basketball Coach Alvin Broussard’s office earlier this year.

Sources say a security camera captured Knauber entering Broussard’s empty office a day before the coach was accused of having the pipe.

APS placed Knauber on administrative leave in May because of allegations of misconduct. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
