Well, well, well … what kind of scandal do we have brewing here?

A Georgia high school football coach has been nixed, and with some serious questions attached to their decision.

Dr. Kristen Waters — who is the Tattnall County superintendent — gave confirmation that head coach Isaac Ferrell is no longer ahead of the Tattnall County High School football program, Channel 2 Action News reported Nov. 15. However, Ferrell is still employed at the school as a teacher, according to a statement sent to the outlet.

The school’s choice to nix Ferrell as the head football coach is seemingly a result of a Nov. 3 incident that allegedly occurred while the team was on the road, although school officials didn’t clarify why exactly he was removed from his post.

The news comes only weeks after the program was hammered with criticism (probably a bunch of loony lefty “parents”) after 20 players were baptized following a practice in October.

Tattnall County Football posted on social media that a local pastor had baptized the players.

“20 young men made the decision to go #ALLIN with Christ!! Show them some support,” the post reads.

Obviously, we don’t know for sure why the football coach was axed, but come on … I think we all know what happened here.

Quite honestly, I hope the players tell the school to screw off and protest for their coach. Get this man’s job back!
