He really should at least be suspended for a game or two. How can a coach ask kids to control themselves while playing a quickpaced, sometimes physical game when he can't control himself enough from angrily grabbing kids by the jersey and screaming at them like a out of control nutjob.

The only person out of line was the coach! He is the adult and should have conducted himself respectfully on the court. What a poor example of sportsmanship and coaching. I agree with the previous post.... punishment is due for our "hands on" coach!

Grabbing a kid is not the correct thing to do because a kid puts up a bad shot its not like the kid was out of hand

When a coach doesn't have a clue, then the clueless coach will blame the player. This coach has never had a clue.

The coach knows very little about the game, anyone who knows anything can see that. Sure he's a nice guy, he just isn't a good coach. Greens proud tradition of competitive well coached teams is ancient history. When were we last at the Convo, 2005?

When they ran those two 6'5" boys off a couple years ago the talent was there. Unfortunately for them they would have cut into someone else's playing time. Wasn't a lack of talent on that team.

Are you really that far gone? It's the kids fault? You need leadership and knowledge to coach. Most of all respect, which the coach has no idea how to earn his players respect! No coach has the right to grab a child and scream in his face! If I were from Green I would be embarrassed to call that a coach!

What does this have to do with the coach being out of line? I have seen him do it on several different occasions during games, so this makes me wonder what he does to them during practice! You don't always have to scream to get through to a kid. Sometimes, talking to them will get through to them a lot faster than getting in their face, screaming and pushing. The coach NEEDS to realize that he is dealing with boys that are becoming men. One day he will get in the face and push the wrong one AND then who is to blame. I believe the school needs to step in, but that will never happen!

Can someone tell me what is wrong with these stupid people?? Do you have nothing better to do than ague about a stupid coach and a retarded ball game? Look the government is going off a cliff!! We are all in more trouble than you can imagine. Try looking for a job and make you teens get a job and quit this total nonsence. School sports is a joke anyway! You only get to play if you are one of the in crowd. If your parents suck up to the teachers and coaches so their brats can play ball and go to school and try to be the big man on campus. Ha Ha what a joke. Don't you people know there is so much more to life than crying about a coach who may or may not have did something wrong to a snotty nose brat!!! Everyone knows the big jocks and the little cheerleaders and the in crowd never end up successful. All they do in school is walk around trying to impress the kids who are really trying to make something of themselves. Acting like they are sooo much better than everyone else. Then boom they graduate and don't have the safty net of the "click" and they fall flat on their face. Some go to college and find out they are a small fish in a big pond! They still try to impress people by talking about the old days of high school and playing the game!! Ha Ha. Parents wake up and try to impress on your teens the importance of learning something to take them through life as a success rather than a hasbeen washed up star high school ball player! And if you are guessing, yes I was the nurdy kid who was pushed around by the jocks. But I didn't waste my time playing sports, I am now a successful business man living the good life! I hear from time to time about the in crowd and how most are on drugs or working for minimum wage and still living in the Furnace... Oh well just my two cents.

You people need to get a life!! Why down the coaches and the kids? We outta be glad this coach doesn't cuss our kids out, most other coaches do!! He is a good person and does a good job with the team. The parents need to learn if your child is gonna play sports their gonna be yelled at and taken out for mistakes. Why do people have to start getting on topix or facebook and degrading our school and the ones giving their time?? PATHETIC!!
