Former NFL star Tebucky Jones said he was bullied into resigning from his job as New Britain High School’s football coach and his players plan to deliver a petition to the Board of Education when the members meet tonight.

Jones, 39, of New Britain, said he resigned earlier this month because school leaders told him he was going to be fired, but had a change of heart when his players started a petition to bring him back.

The players will present the petition to the board during the meeting tonight.

During his nine-year NFL career, Jones played for the New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins.
