SARASOTA, Fla. – The Sarasota Military Academy teacher who was caught on cell phone video yelling at a student will be allowed to resign in lieu of termination.

The Sarasota Herald Tribune reports that SMA officials will nullify Jeff Daughtry's termination. Instead, he'll be allowed to resign next month.

Since the video surfaced, many students have come to the teacher’s defense.

Daughtry, an Army vet recognized for his community work, says he regrets how he reacted.
