Moss Point Tigers basketball coach Micoe Cotton has been suspended

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - All-American Devin Booked bagged 38 points Tuesday night leading the Moss Point Tigers past Vancleave 87-38.  The road win gives Moss Point a 4-0 record in the Division 8-4A standings, 7-11 overall.

However, Moss Point head coach Micoe Cotton was not present.  He was suspended in late December and has now missed seven games.  The suspension was for so-called personal reasons.

The Moss Point school board is deciding Cotton's fate.  After meeting in a closed door session Tuesday night, Deadrick Bogard was named Moss Point interim coach.

WLOX attempted to contact Micoe Cotton but he did not answer his cell phone.
