HERTFORD, N.C. (AP) - A Perquimans County Schools administrator and a high school principal have been suspended after officials learned that two active football players had been convicted of assault before the season began.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reports (https://bit.ly/1tiOJMA) schools spokeswoman Teresa Beardsley said Assistant Superintendent James Bunch was suspended five days without pay, and Perquimans High Principal Chante’ Jordan was suspended three days without pay. Bunch supervises athletics.

In addition, the football coach also had been suspended until Tuesday.

The actions were taken on Thursday.

Two players were charged and convicted of misdemeanor assault charges related to a fight in Hertford in April. The two played football this season until their convictions came to light.

Superintendent Dwayne Stallings suspended the administrators after a closed meeting with the Board of Education on Wednesday.
