Flossie stays at Firestone

By John Published: June 24, 2011

MONDAY UPDATE: The board voted unanimously tonight to overturn superintendent David James' recommendation and keep Flossie for another season as varsity football coach at Firestone. The district could not substantiate allegations that Flossie hit a student last season, but Flossie admitted that he had used profanity.

My colleague, George Thomas, has the story on Firestone's controversial football coach, Tim Flossie, who will not be asked to return for another season.  

See his story here:

Akron Public Schools Superintendent David James will recommend Monday that Firestone High School head football coach Tim Flossie not have his supplemental contract renewed at the board meeting.

Joe Howard, the city's top sports administrator, confirmed that Flossie, a legendary coach in the area, wouldn't receive an offer to return.
