Former Midway High School head football coach and current Sweetwater head coach Craig Moser has temporarily stepped down as coach of the Wildcats following a Monday, July 22, arrest in Loudon for allegedly driving under the influence.

The arrest took place at 12:26 a.m. at the Marathon station off Hwy. 72 in Loudon.

According to the arrest report, Moser was noticed getting out of the driver’s side of a white 2004 Dodge Ram truck. Moser has a strong odor of an intoxicant about his person and red watery eyes, according to the report.

Moser also refused to perform field sobriety tests, police reported.

Upon being taken to the Loudon County jail, Moser was read information about implied consent if he didn’t submit to tests.

He still refused, according to the report.

Assistant coach Mike Martin has been named interim head coach until the case is resolved.

Moser has a court date set for Wednesday, Sept. 18, in Loudon.

He led 11 seasons as head coach of the Midway Greenwaves and remains a resident of Roane County.
