The head football coach for an east Georgia high school will no longer be on the sidelines. In a statement shared with Channel 2 Action News, Tattnall County Superintendent Dr. Kristen Waters confirmed that Isaac Ferrell is no longer coaching the Tattnall County High School football team, but is still employed as a teacher.
The statement said the decision came as a result of an incident on Nov. 3 while the team was traveling. It does not comment on what the incident was.
“The District decided that it would seek a Head football coach that aligned with the best interests of the students of Tattnall County for the 2024-2025 school year,” the statement read. This comes a few weeks after the team received some criticism when 20 football players were baptized after practice last month.
In a post on social media at the end of October, Ferrell allowed a local pastor to join them after practice and baptize several players. “20 young men made the decision to go #ALLIN with Christ!! Show them some support,” the post read.
