What? Okay he was a good coach and the kids and some parents really liked him. But, when he chose to hit a student or students, he became a thug. He is the adult in the situation and should have handled it as an adult, but he chose to get down to their level and be a kid. Now he is paying for that stupid decision. He had an opportunity to teach a valuable lesson, but he chose the wrong route and the lesson he taught was incredibly damaging.
I guarantee if this had been a white coach, the demand for his firing and charges of assault would have been coming from every corner of the county.
