Lauderdale County High School head football coach Bob Grisham has been suspended for 10 days without pay for making anti-gay comments and derogatory comments about first lady Michelle Obama during a class last week.
School board members spent less than 30 minutes in executive session before making the announcement.
In addition to the suspension, which begins today, Grisham cannot teach his fifth period psychology class for the remainder of the school year.
He will be assigned other academic duties during that time, according to Lauderdale County Superintendent Jennifer Gray. She said Grisham will be required to meet monthly with the school system’s personnel director, Mark Butler, for accountability purposes. He must also attend sensitivity training.
