High school football coach suspended over remarks criticizing Michelle Obama, homosexuals

The Lauderdale County School Board has voted to suspend a high school football coach who was recorded making derogatory remarks to a class of students about homosexuals and Michelle Obama.

Lauderdale County High School football coach Bob Grisham has been suspended without pay for 10 days and is ordered to attend sensitivity training for four days. School board officials have also removed Grisham from his position teaching fifth period psychology.

Grisham has said he misspoke during a debate-style discussion an unidentified student recorded on Jan. 28.

Advocates in the LGBT community have called for Grisham's firing or resignation.

Rogersville is about 25 miles east of Florence.
