Relesed by Greenville County Schools.

At the conclusion of the Wade Hampton vs. JL Mann basketball game Friday night the teams’ head coaches were involved in a verbal altercation.

During the confrontation JL Mann Coach Mike Morrison had to be restrained by members of his coaching staff multiple times before exiting the gym.

On Monday Morrison was suspended from his coaching duties pending the outcome of district and law enforcement investigations.

 Today, Greenville County Sheriff’s deputies charged Morrison with “Disturbing Schools.”

Greenville County Schools immediately placed Morrison on leave from his position as computer lab manager and head basketball coach at Mann.

Assistant Coach Devin Davatchi will serve as interim head coach.

The incident is still under review by GCS.
