Football road trip nets coaches probation

Posted By on Tue, Jun 15, 2010 at 12:58 PM

The Paragould Daily Press continues to go after the case of four assistant football coaches at Greene County Tech suspended for five days (with pay) after a road trip to a playoff game in Monticello. Allegations surfaced about drinking on the trip, but the school district has refused to release records that formed the basis for the suspension and the newspaper has sued to get them. (Where is the punishment in a paid vacation?)

Meanwhile, the state Board of Education has put the coaches on probation and fined them $75 each for violating a teacher ethics standard against use of of alcohol, tobacco or unauthorized drugs while on a school activity.
