Former Hoover head football coach Rush Propst suspended in Georgia

Moultrie, GA – Colquitt County head football coach Rush Prost has been suspended pending an investigation into personnel issues.

According to Albany, GA media outlet WALB 10 News, the former Hoover High head coach was placed on paid administrative leave by Colquitt County Schools Superintendent Doug Howell at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday morning.

He has lead the Packers to a 119-35 mark including a pair of Georgia state titles during his 10 year tenure.

Propst’s career head coaching record currently stands at 295-96.
