Longtime Conway High School football coach Chuck Jordan has been placed on administrative leave with pay, pending an investigation into an incident at the school Friday afternoon.
According to Horry County Schools public information officer Teal Britton, the incident involved Jordan, a substitute teacher and a Conway High student. The school, along with HCS, has launched an investigation into what transpired.
“What we know is there was an incident at the school involving (Jordan), a substitute teacher and a student,” she said. “Right now we cannot say exactly what caused the incident, as that is something we are hoping an investigation will help us with.
“Right now, we are putting together witness accounts and looking at surveillance footage to define what may have happened. But when you have three different people, sometimes you have three different versions ... that’s what we are trying to get to the bottom of.”
The substitute teacher involved has been disciplined, though further information regarding the personnel matter was not disclosed. Currently, no incident report has been filed with the Conway Police Department.
Attempts to reach Jordan were unsuccessful.
In 34 seasons at Conway High School, Jordan has a 275-145 record. During his tenure, the Tigers have made four appearances in the Class 4A state title game.
