: : : 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.
People keep making comments like "good luck every being any good again" "Your record will be 2-23 next year" etc etc. You don't get it the school board the admin DO NOT CARE WHAT YOU THINK! They know the program will go on, new kids will come. They don't care if they transfer, they dont care if they win, they dont care what you think!
