Brian Montgomery has resigned from the Gwinnett County school district, ending his position as head coach of Shiloh High's football team, according to Gwinnett County Public Schools officials.
District spokesman Jorge Quintana confirmed the news to Snellville Patch Thursday evening.

The resignation comes days after the school district disclosed that there was an ongoing invstigation into whether Montgomery violated recruitment rules. Quintana said Thursday that the results of that inquiry are being finalized.
Montgomery, who used to coach at North Atlanta High, was reassigned to the district office pending the conclusion of the district's investigation.
The school district began its investigation after learning that the Georgia High School Association was looking into possible recruitment violations. According to a story by the AJC, the inquiry centered, in part, on a former North Atlanta High School student who told the newspaper that Montgomery asked him to transfer.
That investigation is still continuing, according to Ralph Swearngin, GHSA executive director. Any possible sanctions have yet to be determined.
Montgomery had been with GCPS for a little over a year, having been hired in February 2011 to turn around a beleagured football team at Shiloh High.
