Tim Paine's brother-in-law will keep his two cricket coaching jobs after being investigated over alleged lewd messages involving the woman at the centre of Paine's sexting scandal.

Shannon Tubb, who is married to Paine's sister, has returned to work as head coach of the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA)'s academy pathways program.

Tubb has also retained his position as coach of Prince Alfred College's First XI.

The SACA and the college separately investigated Tubb over alleged messages sent during his time at Cricket Tasmania, which he left in 2018.

The messages were allegedly sent to a female Cricket Tasmania employee who also received suggestive text messages from Paine in November 2017.

Paine quit as Australia's Test captain when details of the messages were made public last November, just before the Ashes series.

Tubb returned to the SACA this month, with the cricket organisation deeming no further action was required after its investigation.

And Prince Alfred College this week wrote to the school's parents, advising them that Tubb would be retained as First XI coach.

"We've done a full review of Shannon's position and found out all we could about what had occurred and gave Shannon a chance to explain to us what had happened," the college's principal Bradley Fenner told News Corp.

"We took into account all of the facts of the matter as they were presented to us and we also reflected on the good work that he's done with us over the past almost two and a half years.

"We have subsequently communicated with our parents in the last couple of days, advising the decision we'd reached following the review."
