— A Fayetteville high school football coach who was suspended is back at work.

Milton Butts has returned to E.E. Smith High School after he and two assistant coaches were suspended last week.

WRAL was told the suspensions may be linked to a relationship between one of the coach's sons and a female student.

John McDonald, one of the assistant coaches, is still on leave. Another assistant coach Floyd Mason no longer works at the school.
