The Lauderdale County High School football coach who was recorded making derogatory comments about the First Lady and gays has been suspended. Bob Grisham, who is also a psychology and driver's education teacher, was suspended for 10 days without pay. The Lauderdale County School Board met at 4 p.m. Monday to discuss the matter. Grisham will have to attend mandatory sensitivity classes and meet with the assistant superintendent once a month. The board has also removed him from his 5th period psychology class, and he will be given a different assignment. Some people were pleased with the Board's decision; others think the punishment should have been tougher.
