High School Baseball Coach Suspended for . . . Making Players Spit in His Face?

Coach Justin Hill
May 1, 2015

Over the past 15 years, we’ve had a lot of strange stories involving high school coaches. From sex scandals, to cheating, to one guy who bit the head off a live sparrow during a team bonding weekend at this family farm. (And then was shocked that anyone was upset by it, saying “Sparrows are like rats with wings.” Yeah, that made it all better.) But this time we have a…

March 6, 2015

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. He’d be a free man with a day job as a math teacher, a cool weekend gig as a soccer mascot for the Castleford Tigers (right) and a 16 -year-old girlfriend. But either he didn’t understand the laws in the United Kingdom regarding teachers having relationships with…

Okay, so we’re not going to say that Joseph Louis Ioime of Ocala, FL had a bad plan. But he had a bad plan. Last weekend, Ioime, 64, met with police at the Baseline Golf Course and told the cops that his golf bag and golf clubs–worth over $2,000–had been taken from his car while it was in the parking lot. While the officer was completing his report, he noticed a…

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. A couple of weeks ago we read a story about a high school hockey coach, after losing 9-1, who allegedly attacked and bit…
