Controversial Colquitt County High School football head coach Rush Probst, of mid-2000's MTV reality show "Two-A-Days" fame, has been suspended with pay pending an investigation for unstated reasons.

Back in 2015, Probst was suspended for one year for headbutting a player, but appealed and was allowed to coach during the 2016 season.

Probst has led the Colquitt County Packers football program since 2009 where he has built the rural South Georgia school into a perennial state championship contender and national power, leading the program to two state titles and high national rankings in Georgia's highest classification in 2014 and 2015.

Before being hired at Colquitt County in 2008, Probst was the head coach at Hoover High School outside of Birmingham, Alabama from 1999 to 2007 where he led the Hoover Buccaneers football program to four straight Alabama 6A state titles, five state titles in six years and multiple national rankings before resigning in scandal after admitting to an extramarital affair in which he fathered a child out of wedlock.
