Milton High basketball coach resigns from program

Updated:

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. —

Channel 2 Action News has learned that Milton High School varsity basketball coach David Boyd has resigned from his role in the athletic program.

A letter sent to parents from Milton High School Principal Clifford Jones stated in part: "In an effort to maintain open communication and transparency, I have unfortunate news to share. Milton High has self-reported allegations of what the Georgia High School Association terms “undue influence” in our boys’ basketball program."

Although the letter did not identify Boyd by name, Boyd did confirm to Channel 2 Sports Director Zach Klein in a text message that he is no longer with the program.

Channel 2 sources said Boyd's departure stems from recruiting issues.

The letter continued stating, "As we move forward there will be a thorough investigation and the development of a comprehensive strategy to move our program to new heights of integrity and excellence."

Under Boyd's leadership, the Milton High School varsity basketball team won the AAAAA state championship in 2010 and 2012.
