: : South Hills Coach was fired by school board after accusations of
: : Bullying, misuse of booster funds,and cursing. Many spoke and
: : Asked if he could get his job back.
: : What do you have to say on this folks? High school athletics is in a sad stat.
: : Too much pressure from booster parents.
: Keep your hands away from the money. Don't ever let the boosters say that you "misused money.." Make sure your boosters have correct bylaws and a system for approving purchases and make them make the purchase. Be above reproach.
: Unfortunately, when you have parents highly involved (which you need in order to handle the logistics of running a program), they're going to have something to say. Never get caught in a he-said/he-said situation with a player, make sure another coach or AD is present when you meet. It's just the screwed up world we live in.
@coach... you nailed it. In the end though, its hard if not impossible.
