A Brentwood High School assistant football coach was dismissed without pay from his teaching position at Centennial High School on Feb. 16 pending an investigation that he sent inappropriate text messages and/or computer messages to a Williamson County Schools student.
David Noles, who joined the BHS staff in 2011 to work with the freshman team, had worked with the CHS team from 2008-2010. His specialties are slot back and outside linebackers, according to the BHS 12th Man Club’s website.
In a letter to Noles released by Williamson County Schools Friday afternoon, superintendent Dr. Mike Looney wrote “you are not to return to Centennial High School or any other Williamson County School property until directed to do so.”
The matter was brought to the school system by the Franklin Police Department, according to the letter. When asked about the case, Sgt. Charles Warner replied, “The Franklin Police Department does not comment on active investigations in which no charges have been filed.”
WCS is conducting an independent investigation.
BHP was unable to reach BHS Head Coach Ron Crawford and BHS principal Kevin Keidel for comment.
