Grady High students speak out about investigation

Several football players at Grady High School told the Atlanta Board of Education on Monday they wanted their coach back after he was removed amid an investigation of fraudulently enrolled student athletes.

They said head coach Ronnie Millen, who was transferred to Atlanta Public Schools’ South Region office, is a man of character who helped students graduate and go on to college.

The city school system has been investigating since Dec. 9 whether 20 or more football players used fake addresses so they could attend Grady High.
