    The Hoover school board has re-assigned former Spain Park football coach David Shores to the post of Assistant Athletics Director for the entire school system.

    The move comes weeks after Shores was suspended because of an altercation with a student during practice.  The board did not hear any testimony about the incident before making the move.

    The board says the reassignment was the result of a mutual agreement with Shores.  The reassignment is only valid through the end of the current school year.
