CHOUTEAU, OK — Chouteau High School head softball coach Ed Russell has been relieved of all of his coaching duties, The Times' Kenny Bowyer reported Wednesday.

Rumors began circulating on social media about the coach's dismissal early Wednesday morning, and a school official confirmed the rumors around noon Wednesday.

It was unknown Wednesday whether Russell, who also coaches baseball and archery, will be allowed to stay with the school district in any capacity.

Russell was the head baseball coach at Chouteau until this season, when he became an assistant under Matt Tramel.
