Controversy

Hoover High School became embroiled in controversy in the summer of 2007 over allegations that grades for certain athletes were changed to make them eligible for college sports under National Collegiate Athletic Association regulations. The charges center around players on the football team.[3] Rush Propst, the Bucs' head coach (who has also been the target of unverified charges about indiscretions in his personal life), has denied any wrongdoing, as did then-principal Richard Bishop. Hoover Superintendent Andy Craig appointed a retired federal prosecutor to investigate the charges; that investigations continues to date. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA, often pronounced N-C-Double-A or N-C-Two-A ) is a voluntary association of about 1,200 institutions, conferences, organizations and individuals that organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States. ... Rush Propst is the head coach of the football team at Hoover High School in Hoover, Alabama. ...


On July 25, 2007, the Hoover School Board voted to not renew Bishop's contract after one year of service. The action was based largely on a less-than-satisfactory performance assessment by a former assistant superintendent. Ken Jarnagin was named the interim principal; he just started the previous month as the school system's chief academic officer.[4]
