MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - "I'm very pleased with the information I've heard about the case." That's what Rondavius Milam told abc24.com after learning the Shelby County DA's office isn't pressing assault charges against him. "I feel validated."
In November, Milam, the former head boys basketball coach at Oakhaven High School, was fired as head coach and suspended from teaching after two of his players accused him of hitting them. One of the players, Walter Jamison, admitted he lied about Milam and that the coach never hit him.
Yet Milam remains suspended. He told abc24.com, "I'm not really too concerned about the allegations but it is somewhat of a type of defamation of character, but I'll get through it."
Memphis City Schools said it won't make a decision on Milam's teaching status until the Department of Children Services completes its investigation. A DCS spokesperson told abc24.com it should be finished with its investigation in the next week or two. Milam is currently suspended with pay.
