Hobson planned to resign at the end of the school year to coach the boy's basketball team at Gibson Southern High School. Where he played for in the early 2000's. But after Warrick County administrators confronted him with the allegations, he immediately resigned from Castle High School.
Superintendent Stacey Humbaugh of the South Gibson School Corporation says she is aware of Hobson's recent resignation from Castle High School, but she had no further comment.
Schneider says he commends the students for coming forward and making administrators aware of the alleged situation. He says every claim is taken seriously and keeping public trust is a high priority. "It's just unfortunate because we need and require a high level of public trust in order to be effective. Because let's face it people are sending us their most valuable resources. They're sending us their children to be educated," said Schneider.
