Americus-Sumter football coach Michael Pollock is expected to miss his second straight game Friday because of an incident at practice last week during which he kicked a player in the behind, according to WALB-TV in Albany.
Pollock was not on the sidelines for Americus-Sumter’s 34-18 victory over Macon County last week, the TV station and the Albany Herald have reported. Americus-Sumter plays Albany on Friday.
Pollock and Sumter County schools superintendent Donnie Smith would not comment on the coach’s status except to confirm that the Pollock did not coach last week and likely won’t again this week.
Offensive coordinator Chris Wade is the team’s interim coach.
“It’s a tough situation right now,” Wade told the Albany Herald. “We’re just trying to keep the focus on Albany. And that’s all I can really say.”
