Former MTV 'Two-A-Days' coach Rush Propst suspended in Georgia amid investigation
Rush Propst is in the news once again for the wrong reasons as the current head coach of Colquitt County High School in Georgia has been suspended, with pay, by his local superintendent.
The exact reason for Propst’s suspension is unknown at this time but the superintendent has cited an investigation into “personnel issues” surrounding Propst according to Theo Dorsey of WALB. During his time at Colquitt County, Propst has turned the program into an annual contender, winning two state titles in addition to other state title game appearances.
Prior to taking the Colquitt County job, Propst was the head coach of Hoover High School in Alabama, where his program was featured in the “Two-A-Days” series, which was produced by MTV. Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt and special teams coordinator Kevin Sherrer both worked under Propst at Hoover. The high school coach eventually resigned from his job at Hoover when it was discovered he had a second family despite being already married.
This marks the second time Propst has been suspended at Colquitt, as he once headbutted a player wearing a helmet on the sideline. As if knocking your skull against a helmet wasn’t punishment enough.
Propst’s story has been chronicled by ESPN’s “E 60” show:
