LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Nacogdoches ISD superintendent has released a written apology for reassigning Athletic Director Farshid Niroumand, saying the decision has resulted in "such distress" for the community.

Superintendent Fred Hayes said he made the decision "in haste," without consulting the school board.

Hayes stated since the announcement, which resulted in Niroumand resigning from the district, "there has been an outpouring of support for him and one of disconnect with me and the Nacogdoches ISD Board of Trustees."
