There lots of speculation in Johnstown, Pennsylvania surrounding the decision by Bishop McCort High School to rescind its offer to former NFL defensive back Artrell Hawkins to be the school’s new head football coach. Hawkins, who played for four NFL teams during his career, was hired last week by his alma mater, but on Sunday the school rescinded its offer.
Most of the media conversation surrounding the school’s decision to rescind its offer centers on the fact that Hawkins was arrested on a domestic violence charge in Cincinnati last year. Hawkins was acquitted of the charge during an April 2014 trial.
The school still hasn’t commented on why it decided to rescind its offer to Hawkins, who is a 1994 graduate of McCort.
The school is currently accepting applications for the head coach position. You can get the details on our Coaches Job Board.
