Chamblee High football coach Mattair put on leave
When Chamblee High School football players take the field tonight, their head coach won’t be there.
“Employee Curtis Mattair is currently on paid administrative leave,” DeKalb County School District spokesman Andre Riley told AJC.com Thursday morning in a brief emailed statement.
Earlier media reports indi cated Mattair was suspended indefinitely following a contro- versy surrounding T-shirts the football team received from the coach. The T-shirts, accord- ing to reports, read “DBNP,” an acronym that some say stands for “Don’t Be No (expletive).”
Riley would not confirm those reports. However, he said Mattair was never suspended.
“DCSD does not comment on personnel matters,” Riley said.
Chamblee is scheduled to play Dunwoody High School at 7:30 p.m. today at North DeKalb Stadium, according to the team’s website.
