Surveillance footage shows incident between Conway High football coach, student


CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Surveillance footage obtained Wednesday by WMBF News shows a confrontation that reportedly took place at Conway High School last month between the head football coach and a student.

Coach Chuck Jordan, who also serves as an administrative assistant, was placed on paid administrative leave, and a student was also disciplined following the May 26 incident, Horry County Schools spokesperson Teal Britton previously said.

She added a substitute teacher was also disciplined.

Video of the incident shows Jordan appearing to place his hands on the student’s shoulders and force him into a small hallway or alcove off of the main hallway, where the interaction starts.

“We believe the totality of the circumstances makes it clear that Coach Jordan shouldn’t have been charged in this case,” said Tommy Brittain, Jordan’s attorney.
