On Thursday we told you the story about David Feaster, the head coach at Parkway High School in Louisiana, who banned Nick Saban from his campus for what he believed to be unethical recruiting practices.

In a bizarre and somewhat disappointing follow-up, Feaster was fired as the school's head coach on Friday. And it's directly related to the interview Feaster did with a Baton Rouge radio station when he criticized the Alabama head coach.

There are two sides to the story, and we'll get to Feaster's momentarily. However, the school decided to part with the highly successful head coach (his 59-17 record is the best in school history) after the interview surfaced.

"Coach Feaster and I do not share the same philosophy or vision for Parkway High School athletics," athletic director Waylon Bates said in a statement, courtesy of The Shreveport Times.

According to The Times, Bates didn't like the negative publicity Feaster brought the school when he openly discussed banishing Saban from his campus.

In terms of background, here's what you need to know about the banishment. It starts in 2014 with quarterback Brandon Harris, a player who eventually committed to LSU. Before that, however,Saban and the Crimson Tide coaching staff offered Harris a scholarship, which Feaster later learned wasn't actually a "scholarship." It was basically an excuse to get Harris to campus for summer camp to further evaluate him. Once Feaster found out that the scholarship wasn't really legitimate, he grew frustrated. And in an attempt to protect his players, he banned Alabama personnel from his campus.

It's worth noting that Feaster never said the Crimson Tide couldn't recruit his players, just that they weren't welcome at his school. That's also why Friday's punishment seems so surprising, especially when you hear Feaster's side of the story. Here's what he told The Shreveport Times about the situation.

"Most people are going to say 'Feaster just ran his mouth,' but (Parkway) made it clear to me why they fired me," Feaster told The Times. "They can say what they want to about Alabama, but (Bates) cited me for insubordination. He said, 'You should have checked with me before you banned Alabama.'

"I said, 'That was four years ago, you weren't even the principal here.' But he said I brought so much negative publicity to the school I had to go."

Again, there are two sides of every story and we might never know what the ultimate truth is here. All we know is that a highly successful coach has been let go, basically for sticking up for his players.
