HS Coach Resigns After Players Accused of Hazing at Football Camp

Hazings Category LogoThe high school football season hasn’t even started yet and we already have a coach losing his job over an incident at a summer camp.

Once again we ask: can’t high school football players play the game without going away for a week with very little adult supervision?

You can export more like this before the season’s over.

Details on the story from The Tennessean:

Wildcats head football coach Jim Snider resigned Wednesday, days after Clarksville High’s administration began an investigation into a hazing incident involving the school’s varsity football team.  Snider turned in his letter of resignation Wednesday afternoon, Elise Shelton, Chief Communications Officer for the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System, said in a statement released at 6:30 p.m.

Snider attended a meeting Wednesday with Clarksville High’s administration to discuss the investigation of an incident that took place during the football team’s annual summer camp in Pleasantville last week. He turned in his resignation during that meeting, Clarksville High athletics director Drew Williams said.

“We did accept that resignation,” Williams said. “But I’m not going to comment on what was said during our meeting with the coach.”  Williams said the investigation continues, adding that last week’s incident is now officially regarded as hazing. Williams would not give any details of what happened while the school continues to look into the matter.

Shelton’s press release also confirmed the investigation revealed that players were “involved in hazing and other inappropriate activities at Camp NaCoMe.”
