I am a wrestling coach and I do not see how touching a boy's genitals motivates him at all. It is rather creepy that this sicko even thought this was a motivational tool. I agree with his termination and believe that there is a lot more to it then we all know. However by this man being affilated with M-S sports it makes me question how this creep was allowed to be by our kids. I personally graduated from mahomet - seymour high school and believe that our wrestling program has always received a lot of reconition. As a parent I believe this man should never coach again.

I wrestled at Mahomet and think a lot of this has to do with bonding. When we showeered together we would horse around. One time we had a partner wash each other's back. It was all innocent fun. Hitting and rubbing each other was just for fun. I don't see what the big deal.

First of all not sure when you graduated but that is rather gay. The big deal is he is a coach a mentor to our kids who they trust and we trust to guide them not foundel them.
