A football coach employed by a Wake County high school was suspended from his job after getting arrested and charged with a DWI offense. The 43-year-old North Carolina man was pulled over by authorities on a recent Wednesday night. As of last reports, there has been no indication as to whether the man has retained a criminal defense attorney to represent him in the driving while impaired case.
A representative speaking on behalf of Wake Forest High School, where the man worked as a football coach, has confirmed that the man was suspended from his job duties. Until his arrest, the coach had led the Cougars football team since 2007. He achieved a record of 84-17 during that time. He even brought the team to the state championships on two different occasions. So far this year, the team has been undefeated.
