Posted April 22, 2003 3:00 a.m. EDT

— Hillside High School's athletic director is out of a job after a serious "foul" is uncovered.

T.C. Marshall lost his sports job after an audit from the N.C. High School Athletic Association found Hillside allowed several athletes who were ineligible this school year because of excessive absences or bad grades to play.

The school has to forfeit all games in which ineligible athletes participated and pay $500 per infraction.

Marshall will remain in the classroom as a physical education teacher.

Kenneth Barnes, an assistant principal at the school, is now the interim assistant director.
