Propst on firing: Investigation unfair, allegations false or misleading

by admin

Former Colquitt County football coach Rush Propst, fired last week after 11 seasons that brought the Packers 119 wins and two state championships, issued a statement on his ouster for the first time Tuesday. He called the Colquitt County superintendent’s investigation unfair and many of the allegations ‘’totally false’’ or ‘’misleading.’’ He said he was not aware of the specific allegations that led to his firing until he read them in the media last week and was given no chance to answer them.

The investigation, conducted by schools superintendent Doug Howell, alleged that Propst violated ethics rules related to honesty, public funds and property, legal compliance and conduct with students, according to the Moultrie Observer.

More specifically, Howell’s report stated that Propst had provided over-the-counter medication to student-athletes despite instructions against it, interfered with the hiring of a principal, attempted to charge a personal hotel stay to the school system, owed more than $300,000 in back taxes and failed to control the behavior of his players, particularly after the 2018 state-championship game against Milton, which Colquitt County lost.
