ALBANY, GA (WALB) - School starts three weeks from Wednesday in Dougherty County.

The man who was supposed to oversee a new bussing schedule quit after only a week on the job.

John Lyles just replaced long-time Transportation Director Willie Griffin who retired, but Lyles is already off the job.

He previously worked for the Clayton County School System, which uses a staggered school start time schedule, similar to the one Dougherty County plans to implement this year.

"He was looking to get out of Clayton County. Clayton County however made him a very lucrative offer to stay, which is what he did after a week with us. Currently I'm standing in as director of transportation, as well as all my other duties. We have an advertisement out there again and hopefully we'll get some good applicants," said Robert Lloyd, Dougherty County Schools.

The transportation director's position is an at-will job, and Lyles did not sign a contract.
