Parkway High School (Bossier City, LA) has relieved head football coach David Feaster of his duties, according to KSLA News 12.  Feaster’s removal as head coach comes a week after he called University of Alabama head coach Nick Saban “unethical” on a radio show.  For the past year, Alabama coaches have been banned from recruiting Parkway players by Feaster, who served as the school’s head coach over the last six years.

Roy Lang III of the Shreveport Times, which is part of the USA TODAY High School Sports network, is reporting that Parkway principal Waylon Bates has issued a statement saying, “Coach Feaster and I do not share the same philosophy or vision for Parkway High School athletics.”

The battle with Saban and Alabama reportedly began when Feaster felt the Crimson Tide staff mishandled the recruiting of former Parkway and LSU quarterback Brandon Harris.

Feaster’s record at Parkway was 59-17.
