Rush Propst is out as the head football coach at Colquitt County. According to the Moultrie Observer, the Colquitt County Board of Education relieved Propst of his coaching duties Thursday afternoon after a closed-door session.

Propst was suspended on February 26 while the school conducted an investigation in undisclosed allegations of misconduct.

Propst’s record with the Packers was 119-35 in 11 seasons. His teams won state titles in 2014 and 2015. The ’15 team was named as the “mythical” High School Football America nation champs. This past season, the Packers finished No. 27 in the HSFA 100 national rankings.

This past season, Colquitt County finished runner-up in Georgia’s largest classification (AAAAAAA). The Packers reached the semifinals or better nine of the past 10 seasons.

Propst is no stranger to controversy, in 2007, he left Hoover (Alabama) under a cloud of issues after winning five state titles, plus was the central figure in the MTV show Two-A-Days that chronicled his 2005 and 2006 teams.
