Valdosta Wildcats Getting Their Propst, Hires Former Colquitt County Coach
One of the most winningest highest school football programs in the country has hired well known Rush Propst as the new head coach of the storied program. On Tuesday night, the Valdosta school board held a vote in which ended with a 5-4 result in favor of the Wildcats filling their head coach vacancy with Propst who last coached for Colquitt County before being terminated by the school for several allegations including administering medication to student-athletes. Back in January, Propst was announced as the head coach for the newly formed USA Academy in Alabama, however later in February, Propst resigned from the position, citing difference between himself and the school in which he believed he would not have enough time to build the program properly. About a week after stepping down from the USA Academy position, Propst was a guest on the South Georgia radio station in which he told the show’s host that he was indeed interested in the Valdosta head coach position, which became available following the school’s firing of former coach, Alan Rodemaker. Last month, the Georgia Professional Standards Commission awarded Propst with his teaching certificate, all but clearing the way for him to return to the sidelines.
