Neshaminy School District officials have suspended longtime Neshaminy football coach Mark Schmidt for grabbing one of his players by the jersey in a game last week.
Schmidt will not direct practices this week or be on the sideline for Friday night's Suburban One League National Conference game at Bensalem. He said he can resume his coaching duties Saturday.
Neshaminy principal Rob McGee and athletic director Tom Magdelinskas did not return phone calls seeking comment.
Schmidt came under fire for his action after a personal-foul call in the second half of last Friday's 21-14 win over visiting Council Rock South.
