JESUP, Iowa (AP) — The head high school wrestling coach in Jesup has resigned a few days after he was suspended by school officials.
No one is saying why Brent Meyers, also a middle school teacher, resigned or why he was about to be fired by the school board.
A special meeting had been called in Jesup for Friday night to consider firing Meyers. He handed in his resignation effective Dec. 5 on Friday morning.
Superintendent Nathan Marting tells KWWL television (http://bit.ly/IxPM55http://bit.ly/IxPM55 ) he can't comment since it's a personnel matter.
The school board unanimously accepted the resignation.
Meyers declined interviews saying he couldn't comment because he was focusing on his wife, who is in the hospital with complications from pregnancy.
Several parents stepped forward at Friday's school board meeting to support Meyers.
