Re: WWYD (sensitive topic, bullying and more)
I would bring it up to the higher ups at school or talk to the coach yourself. What a terrible situation and totally unacceptable!
I would keep the discipline for the bullying (if you still had any going) because he should not be allowed to bully others regardless and I may lighten the discipline about the grades (say once everything is a C or above he gets some electrontics back and B or above and he gets it all back, for example).
I think the coach needs disciplinary action against him for bullying and if your son really wanted to quit football, I would allow it. Does he have anything else he is passionate about? Other hobbies? If not, I would worry a bit about all the freetime and try and channel that energy into something positive.
Good luck! I am sorry you are going through this!
