Westfall High School Head Football Coach Trent Olds has been placed on administrative leave pending a legal investigation.
iHeart Media Sports was notified Monday morning about the possible action against the coach and reached out early Monday evening to Westfall Athletic Director Trevor Thomas, who did eventually respond with an email late Monday evening.
Thomas says the following statement was also sent to players and parents at Westfall:
”Recent events have led the Westfall Local School District to suspect that a football coach at Westfall may have engaged in improper handling of school funds. Westfall Local School District takes reports of improper behavior by staff members seriously and has turned the matter over to law enforcement for investigation. The school district can offer no further comment at this time so that we do not interfere with an ongoing investigation by law enforcement.”
Thomas’ statement concluded with: “Coach Brad Smith will serve as the temporary head coach until the district can further assess the situation.“
Westfall is scheduled to open their season at home against Madison Plains on August 24th.
