Sarepta High School's football coach has resigned after being accused of obstructing justice in a fire
allegedly set by his son and two other teens.
The Webster Parish School Board put John Bryant of Shreveport on administrative leave after his arrest Dec. 3.
Seventeen-year-old Luke Daniel Bryant, 17-year-old George Smith of Sarepta and a 16-year-old allegedly set the fire in November.
It burned a former slaughterhouse being used by the school for storage.
All three were booked in December with arson, conspiracy and making an incendiary device.
The 17-year-olds and John Bryant also were booked with contributing to a juvenile's delinquency.
