||Source: Smither to miss Northeast finale
BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — Northeast head football coach Ricky Smither has been suspended by the school for the Tigers' season finale Thursday night vs. Holmes, a source says Sports.
The school would not confirm or comment on Smither's suspension. However, the source says Smither was suspended for excessive cursing during a recent game.
Smither is in his seventh season as the Tigers' head coach. He is the second-winningest coach in Northeast football history. However, the Tigers are 2-6 overall this season and 2-3 in the MACJC North Division. They were recently eliminated from postseason contention.
The source says offensive coordinator Greg Davis will serve as the Tigers' acting head coach on Thursday.
