Topsail baseball coach fired in wake of ineligible player investigation

HAMPSTEAD, NC (WWAY) — Pender County Schools will not renew Topsail High School baseball coach Aaron Rimer’s contract for the 2018-2019 school year amid an investigation into the school’s administration.

The decision came down last week in a letter sent to Coach Rimer. In the letter, the school board informed him that his contract was not going to be renewed and that his request for a discretionary hearing was denied.

Rimer’s firing is the second personnel move since it was discovered the Topsail baseball team used an ineligible player, which cost them a chance to compete for a state championship. Topsail high’s athletic director stepped down in May.

An investigation into the school is continuing in Hampstead, Pender County Schools still have not made a final announcement regarding their findings.
