Police said the coach was Lee Linville, a West Rowan High School assistant football coach. Linville was apparently in a fight with a student in a released video another student took.
The name or identity of the student hasn’t been released.
In the video, the coach and the student are seen in a corner. The coach then pushes down the student on the ground. The student also seems to be holding back the coach during the altercation.
When the video was first released, Linville had been suspended with pay, which then became suspension with no pay after more investigation was done, according to Rowan-Salisbury Schools.
An internal investigation is being conducted by the school district while they also work with police.
As of Saturday, there have been no charges filed.
