Miami Northwestern High School's head football coach gets suspended

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Miami Northwestern Senior High School’s administration launched an investigation into alleged unauthorized football training during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a statement Miami-Dade County Public Schools released Friday night.

Daisy Gonzalez-Diego, a spokeswoman for MDCPS, said the school’s head football coach, Max Edwards, has been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.

“Further action may be taken against others who may have been involved in this unsanctioned event,” Gonzalez-Diego said. “The school is in the process of communicating with parents of students who may have participated.”

The announcement comes hours after Gov. Ron DeSantis lifted restrictions to allow youth activities in the state.


“Edwards is the first coach to lead the Bulls to three consecutive state championship wins, a remarkable milestone for the coaching staff, the team, and the overall community” -- Florida Senate Resolution
