Stinson Cleared To Return To Classroom

Former Pleasure Ridge Park High School football coach Jason Stinson has been cleared to return Thursday to his PRP teaching position.

Stinson was acquitted last week of reckless homicide and wanton endangerment in the August, 2008 heat stroke death of sophomore player Max Gilpin.    The 37 year old Stinson was re-assigned to a non-teachign position and replaced as coach after his indictment in January.

He’s now able to resume his technical teaching job at PRP and to apply for coaching jobs, according to Jefferson County Public Schools officials.

His attorney said after the trial that Stinson wants to return to coaching football.
