ATLANTA - Atlanta
Public Schools Superintendent Erroll Davis said they received a tip Nov. 7 that several players did not live within the school boundaries and they were recruited to play for the Grady Knights.
Davis said they have just started their investigation and have decided to remove and reassign long time head coach Ronnie Millen. No action was taken against the assistance coaches because they do not work for the district.
Millen was a physical education teacher at Grady before the allegations. Davis said if parents signed an illegal affidavit, they may have exposed themselves to the justice system and could face criminal charges.

Ryan Bary, a 2009 Grady graduate, also said that Coach Millen is a great guy and finds it highly unlikely that he would be involved in a recruiting and address fraud investigation.
