Assistant role at B-C denied to former Swansea head football coach
It appears former Swansea High School head football coach Greg Wright will remain off the sidelines this fall.
Multiple sources state Lexington School District Two had denied head coach Rusty Charpia’s request to hire Wright as a defensive coordinator. The sources indicated the reasons stated by Lexington School District 4 for his June 28 termination as Tigers’ head coach played a factor in preventing Wright from serving in a voluntary role.
Wright is currently suing Lexington School District Four for $300,000, citing defamation and civil conspiracy in connection to his firing as head football coach. The Aug. 13 deadline for the district to respond to the lawsuit was extended, as confirmed by Wright’s attorney Lewis Cromer.
Lexington School District 4 has remained silent on the issue since upholding their decision to dismiss Wright in July. A spokesperson for District 2 has also not responded for comment on the matter.
Wright is currently now scheduled to work this fall at Sandhills Elementary School as a physical education teacher. He was originally slated to work at the Middle School.
Eric Pack made his debut as Swansea head coach Friday in a loss to Lower Richland.
Wright was unavailable for comment. One of his attorneys, Paul Porter, is slated to hold a press conference in the next week regarding the situation.
