What happened exactly?

It would appear that certain Forum Rules are being enforced . . . which is fine.  Just google "west orange high school football coach" and you'll see rather quickly what all the fuss is about.

This may mark the beginning of the rise of Windermere High, and the decline of West Orange, as a football program. Bob Head was a very good football coach who got the most out of the kids he coached. Sorry to see his tenure at West Orange end this way and hope that: a) he will get a second chance elsewhere; and B) something like what happened never happens again.

It has been announced on the team's Twitter that current OC Terence Tolbert will take over, though it appears he currently will hold the interim tag. 

They are going to interview.  He is just in charge until they hire someone.

I really feel for the guy.  In the old days, this would have passed.  Today, everyone is so worried about image, your so-called friends and supporters bail on you in a heartbeat, regardless of circumstances.  Everyone makes mistakes.  Gosh, with the mindset today, it's a matter of time before any of us gets thrown in jail and/or fired.  Let's make an entire family, not to mention his players, suffer because "it didn't look good"...pathetic.

Rush Probst, Robert Kraft, Larry Baer...folks are dropping like flies.  Has anyone noticed?:rolleyes: Will we have any coaches left in 10 years?

The irony...I think most sports fans are well aware that many athletes, coaches, franchise owners etc, are not your typical, middle-of-the-pack folks who go through life without some bit of controversy.  It's their edginess that often propels them to prominence in business and/or athletics, right?.  

How many coaches or pro athletes out there have never...gotten in a nasty altercation with a wife/girlfriend, slapped/punched someone not truly in self-defense, committed adultery, watched porn on the internet, gotten disorderly and/or drove while under the influence, etc etc   I bet many of us could have been arrested if we had been in the wrong place at the wrong time, or if there had been iphones back in the day to video us at the "wrong" time. 

A pattern of behavior is one thing...but today one incident can ruin your career and means of putting food on the table.  I find our lack of compassion/tolerance today much more disturbing than some of these behaviors for which people are being put in jail or fired from jobs.   Do any others feel this way?

nope they give those to all the kids that participate in sports.  That's why we have 9 classes.  

I have no problem with anyone who participates and finishes their commitment to get a medal

 

But there should be a significant difference towards people who finish as the best to be given the ultimate trophy
