At one point Yolanda Moore was the first African American head coach at any private school in the state of Mississippi. Now, she is out of a job.
WCBI has learned that Coach Moore, her daughter and Heritage player Ashley Moore and Rutgers committ Rachel Hollivay have all been dismissed from the team. Moore has been fired while Hollivay has been told she can stay in school academically to complete her senior year if she so chooses. Hollivay transferred to Heritage two years ago from New Hope.
Coach Moore and Hollivay reportedly got into a cuss-filled verbal altercation during the girls game on Tuesday night leading to the Heritage Academy board to take action on Wednesday.
President Tim Upton and Secretary Mark Bean declined comment upon request.
