A coach accused of bullying a football team is making national news on Oct. 22. According to Fox News, a parent accused Texas' Aledo High School football coach Tim Buchanan of bullying after his team beat their opponents 91-0. The parent felt that the coach encouraged his team to "bully" the other team by outscoring them in a blowout fashion.
"It wasn't good for anybody. I've sat and gone over and over and over it on what we could have done differently. The score could have very easily been 150 to nothing," said coach Buchanan after hearing about the claims made against him.
The accused bullying football team was playing against Western Hills High School, a team that isn't as good as Aledo. Buchanan said that he took out his starters and let most of his players play to try and give everyone a fair shot. Even still his team crushed their opponents... and he's hearing about it.
"We all witnessed bullying firsthand, it is not a pretty sight. I did not know what to say on the ride home to explain the behavior of the Aledo coaches for not easing up when the game was in hand," read the complaint filed by an angry parent. It is unclear if Buchanan had been making comments or gestures to tease the other team... but accusing a coach of bullying just because his team wins doesn't make much sense.
