“I am stunned by the overreaction of Cincinnati Public Schools. Firing the coach, who was not involved in this incident, and cancelling the football season for the entire team is wrong. Their actions affected kids on the team who were not even present.By all accounts, this football coach was a positive influence in these kids’ lives.
