Foy was suspended with pay by New Hanover County Schools on December 12.

Earlier this month, his case came to a deferred prosecution agreement, meaning the state and the defendant agreed to discontinue the case for 10 months.

Foy led the Wildcats baseball team to back-to-back state championships and a combined record of 56-3 over the past two seasons.
