Gordon coach faces embezzlement charges

Though it has yet to play a game, the Gordon Highlanders club football team is already looking for a new coach. Brandon Carter, 36, who was hired to start the program at GSC, is under investigation for embezzling athletic fees paid by players to the program. LCSO investigator Lt. Chad Payne met with Wesley Horne, director of ethics and compliance at the college, about the matter on Jan. 15. Lt. Payne expects to file multiple charges against Carter this week. Gordon officials referred inquiries to Aaron Diamant, vice-chancellor for communications at the University System of Georgia. Diamant issued a brief statement saying only, ‘Mr. Carter is no longer employed at Gordon State College. We cannot comment further pending conclusion of the investigation.’ The Highlanders will kick off their six-game schedule March 6 at Middle Georgia. Calvin Adams is serving as interim coach. He is joined by volunteer assistants Christian Lane, offensive coordinator; Chad Few of Barnesville, defensive coordinator; and Rodnique Brown, assistant defensive coordinator.
