Indecency charge costs ex-NFL player his coaching job

Former NFL linebacker Reggie Burnette has lost his job as a high school coach after he was arrested on an indecency charge.

Burnette, a linebacker who played for the Packers in 1991 and for the Buccaneers in 1992 and 1993, resigned as Mount Vernon Presbyterian School’s head football coach following an arrest last month for public indecency, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

According to the report, the 44-year-old Burnette is accused of exposing himself to an adult female.

“The victim stated that she had a flat tire on her vehicle (white Lexus) and that she was waiting for roadside assistance vehicle from Lexus when she was approached by a black male in a blue van who asked her for directions and then exposed his genitalia to her before leaving,” the police report says.

The school immediately put Burnette on leave after his arrest.
