Charlotte businessman David Moore, the new president and CEO of ClickItGolf, says Quinn was “relieved of duties” in early August after an investigator and attorney found irregularities there. However, he was still Fort Mill Girl’s Soccer coach up until his arrest.
Moore said that there were “cash discrepancies were discovered,” prompting him to contact the authorities.
