The bottom line is a teacher or coach should NEVER hit a student. I don't care what Coach Brown's excuse is to justify hitting them but it does not matter. There are many other ways that he could have handled this situation, perhaps he could have to the sheriff on campus. It's unbelievable to me that he decided it would be ok to assault a student. I'm sure Coach Brown is a great guy but he deserves to be punished for his actions.
