More news has come out about what led to famous high school football coach Rush Propst being fired by Colquitt County High School in Georgia. According to the Moultrie Observer, who obtained leaked information, Propst is allegedly accused of several things, including illegally distributing painkillers to players and misallocating school funds.

According to the investigation led by Colquitt County School Superintendent Doug Howell, Propst violated five “standards of the Georgia Code of Ethics for Educators by giving polls to students ‘on more than one occasion.” Football coaches are not allowed to give painkillers to players.


In addition, he allegedly owes more than $300,000 in federal taxes to the IRS. Plus, he also owes $143,000 to the State of Georgia.

Howell’s investigation found Propst in violation of Code of Ethics for Educators for 1) legal compliance, 2) conduct with students, 3) honesty, and 4) public funds and property.

“In my opinion, there is one more standard to be considered,” Howell said. “Standard No. 9: ‘An educator shall demonstrate conduct that follows generally recognized professional standards and preserves the dignity and integrity of the education process. Unethical conduct is any conduct that is detrimental to the health, welfare, discipline or morals of students.’”

Propst also allegedly, according to the investigation, interfered in the hiring of Jamie Dixon as school principal. He also charged a personal hotel stay to the school.

He is one of the most famous high school football coaches. He spent 11 seasons at Colquitt County after arriving in 2008.

Propst was the head coach of MTV’s Two-A-Days when he was at Hoover High School in Alabama. As a high school football coach, he has guided his team to seven National Championships with five in Alabama and two in Georgia.

According to First Coast News, Propst had the highest salary of all the football coaches in the state. He was making $141,870 at Colquitt County, before his firing.
