Our highschool varsity football coach retired last yr after 20 years, and my husband who is a bit younger, 31, took over the job. So far it has been a nightmare. The players have acted like brats, they do not listen to anything he says, they skip practice and basically just goof off the entire practice anyway, and just ignore him and are downright rude, even calling him bad names.
Last Friday he caught 6 players at the away game drinking alcohol in Mountain dew bottles durning the half time. He has suspended all these players, and they may be kicked off the team after further review. Because of this he has recieved so much flank from the parents saying he is being unfair, and that kids will be kids.
I don't know about nowadays, but when I was in pom pom we always respected our coach, and would never dream of acting like these players.
Jut wondering if coaches are not valued anymore, is it even worth coaching now?
