The wife of suspended Wynne football coach Van Paschal took to social media on Thursday night to defend her husband.

After the Wynne School District announced the suspension of the state’s top-earning active prep football coach, rumors swirled.

Lisa Paschal’s Facebook post told her husband’s side of the story.

“Truth is a [football] player]pulled a knife on another football player,” wrote Lisa Paschal, who, according to her Facebook profile, is a second grade teacher at Wynne Elementary School. “No fights or injuries occurred. My husband was simply sent home for lack of supervision, no criminal charges are brought against him. He was never even questioned by the superintendent.

According to the district statement, Van Paschal is currently suspended with pay.

Van Paschal is Arkansas’ winningest active coach with an all-time record of 239-125.

The Yellowjackets, who are ranked No. 25 in the SBLive Arkansas Power 25 rankings, are 5-2, 3-1 in the 5A East conference with a championship game against 1-6 Paragould scheduled for Friday night.
