(updates; adds Boley comments)

Former Caroline High School football coach Gene Boley has not been offered a job with the Spotsylvania County school system, according to a spokeswoman for Spotsylvania schools.

“We did not offer him a position,” said René P. Daniels, director of public information. “He’s interviewing.”

Boley, who stepped down as head football coach at Caroline High School in December, resigned his teaching post recently.

He accepted an administrative position at Massaponax High School in Spotsylvania County, he told The Caroline Progress earlier. His duties will include supervising students in detention, he indicated.

Daniels disagreed. “Nothing’s been offered to him,” she reiterated.

“He misrepresented himself,” she added.

Reached today for comment, Boley said the principal offered him the position. However, he acknowledged he has not been able to start work yet pending the outcome of a background investigation and approval by the Spotsylvania County School Board.

Boley, 50, told The Progress earlier that he would begin his new duties as soon as his appointment was approved by the Spotsylvania School Board and expected to begin working March 5. He also will have duties as an assistant football coach, he said.

His resignation as health and physical education teacher at Caroline High School is effective April 1, according to Boley, and his teaching duties ended in late February.
