First-year Ringgold High School football coach Lloyd Price was handed a one-game suspension by the school district for last week's game at Albert Gallatin.
The Rams picked up their first victory of the 2009 season, 41-38, thanks to a couple defensive touchdowns. Matt Humbert, an assistant coach who played football at Cal U, served as head coach for Ringgold.
According to one report, there will be an executive session at Wednesday's school board meeting to determine the status of the 26-year-old Price, who is Ringgold's athletic director, and that the football team would attend on his behalf.
Price had no comment and the Observer-Reporter was unable to confirm such action would be taken at the school board meeting.
A previous post by Ringgold Legend on the Varsity Letters stated "Lloyd Price was suspended for fighting for two of his players against the school boards will. I will not say what the kids did, but he represented them or took the stand or something for the kids and Ringgold's Administration was not happy about it."
Price became Ringgold's seventh head football coach in 11 years when he replaced Jeff Petrucci.
