The Mineral Wells High School football coach and athletic director has resigned under an accusation that he struck two players with a stick.

Seth Hobbs has announced his resignation, effective at the end of the school year.

Some football players claim he swore at them and struck them with a stick to which was attached a Nerf football. The device is commonly used in certain football drills.

The Mineral Wells school district says Hobbs was offered the option of keeping his teaching position while giving up his coaching and AD duties. But he chose to resign from the district entirely.
