Amid allegations of domestic violence, White County football coach Gregg Segraves submitted his letter of resignation as coach and teacher on Thursday, White County schools superintendent Paul A. Shaw confirmed to The Times.

Segraves’ resignation will go into effect Dec. 31 and he will be on paid leave until then, Shaw said.

Shaw declined to comment further.

Segraves had been on indefinite leave since Sept. 22 following claims by his wife, Cindy, of multiple instances of domestic violence.

Cindy Segraves, who is also a teacher at White County, was granted a temporary protective order on Sept. 23.

The protective order stated the alleged instances occurred on Sept. 19, 20 and 21, with the final instance occuring on school property.

In Segraves’ absence, Warriors defensive coordinator Tommy Flowers has assumed coaching duties.

White County principal John Osborne told The Times Flowers will remain interim coach for the forseeable future and that no plans for a permanent replacement of Segraves are in place.

White County (4-1, 1-0 Region 8A-AAA) plays at North Hall (3-2, 1-0) on Friday.
