An assistant coach for Franklin County High School’s football team during the 2013 season is now facing drug charges, but few details are being released in the case.
According to his citation, deputies with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office arrested Gordon Miles at his home Thursday and charged him with trafficking in marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
FCHS Athletic Director Tracy Spickard confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Miles is not a part of the current year's coaching staff.
A Franklin District judge released the 31-year-old Thursday on his own recognizance, jail records show.
Sheriff Pat Melton and prosecutors have declined to comment on the case.
The citation states that deputies executed a search warrant at Miles’ home, 113 Baltrussol, and found about 4 pounds of marijuana, along with two sets of digital scales.
His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 26.
