The Fouke, Arkansas School Board accepted the retirement of its football coach Monday night.

Superintendent Jim Buie tells NBC 6 News, the board came out of executive session and voted 7-0 to accept Coach Rick Barker’s retirement.

Last week, Barker was arrested on a charge of public intoxication after authorities say he crashed a school vehicle into a ditch.  According to a police report, Barker admitted to having “maybe four beers.”
