A highschool head coach and 6 assistant coaches at McKinley Senior Excessive College in Canton, Ohio had been fired for forcing a soccer participant to eat a pepperoni pizza. The scholar is a Hebrew Israelite whose household eats kosher. The coaches allegedly compelled the coed to eat it as a result of the coed missed a observe resulting from an damage. The coaches allegedly instructed the coed if he didn’t eat the pork-containing pizza, his teammates must do further drills.
From ABC News:
The alleged incident was captured on the college’s surveillance cameras, in line with Canton Metropolis College District superintendent Jeff Talbert. Nonetheless, the video has not been launched.
On Thursday night, the Canton Metropolis College District’s board of training voted 5-0 to terminate the pinnacle football coach, Marcus Wattley, together with six assistant coaches, Cade Brodie, Joshua Grimsley, Romero Harris, Frank McLeod, Zachary Sweat and Tyler Thatcher. Their contracts is not going to be renewed at McKinley Senior Excessive College or wherever else within the college district.
Wattley’s lawyer claims his shopper did not drive the coed to eat the pizza. If that is true, the video would have proven that, and but the college fired him anyway. Wattley’s story would not sound kosher to me. (The opposite factor that stood out is that this college has seven soccer coaches! That should value the college some huge cash. I assume a program that provides college students head injuries is extra essential than offering them with an training.)
