Over the years, we’ve reported on any number of players and coaches who have been arrested at high school sporting events. Occasionally, we even have parents and fans who get in trouble with the law at games. But a teacher who’s not also a coach?

Twelve days. If Robert Dillon, 26, could have only waited 12 more days he wouldn’t be heading off to jail in Britain this week.

Hey coach! Maybe You’re not yourself when you’re hungry. Have a Snickers . . . or maybe just nibble on someone’s face. Apparently yelling at, and/or punching someone else is not enough to let coaches express their emotions these days. Now, it seems, it’s all about the biting.
