MOULTRIE, Ga. (WALB) -- Colquitt County High School head football coach Rush Propst has been suspended with pay pending an investigation, according to Superintendent Doug Howell.

Howell said Propst was placed on administrative leave at 9 a.m. Tuesday, pending an internal investigation into personnel issues.

The Packers coaching staff and football team has been brought up to date on the situation.

The school system is handling the investigation. Howell said he has no idea how long it could take.

Propst has been the Packers' head football coach since 2008. His teams have gone 119-35 with two state titles.

The Packers went 14-1 in 2018 under Propst and made an appearance in the 7-A title game but fell to Milton, 14-13.

Propst has faced suspension before at CCHS for headbutting a player in 2015.
