GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) — Former NFL quarterback Max Hall has lost his job as offensive coordinator at Gilbert High School after his arrest last week.

A Gilbert Public School official said Friday that the 28-year-old Hall won't be returning to the school, where he was in his first season with the football team.

Hall was arrested last Saturday in Gilbert on suspicion of shoplifting and possession of narcotics.

Police say several stolen items from Best Buy and Walmart were found in Hall's backpack along with a "personal-use quantity of cocaine."

Hall grew up in nearby Mesa and starred at BYU from 2007-09 before being signed as an undrafted free agent by the Arizona Cardinals.

He played in six games for the Cardinals in 2010 and was with the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2013.
