WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The former Brookland-Cayce High School boys' soccer coach who resigned after he was suspended for a "life lessons" speech now has a new job. 

Kevin Heise and his wife, Emily Heise, will be named the boys' and girls soccer coaches at Gray Collegiate Academy, respectively, at a 10 a.m. news conference on Tuesday

Heise voluntarily resigned from his position at the Lexington Two school in April despite a groundswell of support from parents who wanted him reinstated from administrative leave after the speech that parents said referenced "thugs" and "rednecks."

Students and parents rallied around Heise through T-shirts labeled "Support Heise." A Change.org petition with over 2,100 signatures also looked to push the district to bring Heise back on board.

The district never formally said why Heise was placed on leave.
