After a highly successful run as head coach of Colquitt County’s football team, Rush Propst has officially been let go by the Colquitt County Board of Education. That decision was handed down on Thursday.
The news was first reported by the Moultrie Observer. The board did not specify the reason for its decision to let Propst go.
Propst had held the position dating back to 2008. During his time at Colquitt County, the school captured two Georgia state titles. Just over two weeks ago, Colquitt County suspended Propst for an unspecified reason but did cite a “personal matter” when his suspension was handed down.
Before taking over at Colquitt County, Propst was considered by many to be the best high school coach in the state of Alabama as he led the highly successful Hoover High School program. His program was so successful, MTV documented two seasons of the high school’s football program. That program was called, “Two-A-Days.”
Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt was an assistant with Propst during the series’ run. At one point, Nick Saban was interested in hiring Propst for his Alabama staff.
Propst’s story has previously been covered by ESPN’s “E 60” show:
