Inquiries have been made by the public and media regarding Chris Collins, Colleton County High School Head Football Coach/Athletic Director, being placed on administrative leave.
This is to acknowledge that he has been placed on administrative leave, with pay and full benefits, for allegations of unprofessional conduct, pending an investigation.
In the interim, the head football coaching responsibilities have been assumed by Neal Smith and the athletic director responsibilities have been assumed by Lauren Townsend.
This will ensure that our student athletes continue to be fully supported as participants at Colleton County High School.
The parents and community are encouraged to continue to support the student athletes and the athletic program during this time.
This is a pending personnel matter and no further details can be shared.
