The Manawa School Board removed Brad Johnson as their head coach of the varsity football and wrestling teams for the 2018-19 academic year. Records show that Johnson had distributed creatine and protein powder to student athletes and encouraged them to use performance enhancing supplements between September 2016 and September 2017. Johnson and District Administrator Melanie Oppor signed a Discipline Agreement and under the terms of the agreement, Johnson relinquished all duties associated with serving as the head varsity football and wrestling coach for the 2018-19 school year. However, he may serve as an assistant varsity football and wrestling coach in 2018-19. If Johnson complies with the terms of the agreement, the administration will recommend to the school board that he be assigned as the head football and wrestling coach for the 2019-2020 school year.
