Embattled Coach Will Be Replaced

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The superintendent of a Kentucky school
district with a football coach under indictment following a
player's heat-related death says applications will be sought for
that coach's position after the school year ends in June.

Jefferson County Superintendent Sheldon Berman told The
Courier-Journal for a story published Thursday that the job will
need to be filled because he does not believe the criminal case
against the coach will be resolved before the school will need to
have a new coach in place.

Coach David Jason Stinson has pleaded not guilty to reckless
homicide in death of 15-year-old Max Gilpin, who died after
collapsing at an August practice.

Stinson is reassigned to other non-teaching duties until his
case is resolved. Former assistant coach Jason Hiser has been
serving as the interim coach.
