Why was he suspended then do you think?
Because a few parents made some noise about their sons not getting in the game? Hardly. I think they were rightfully upset because they understood that there would be no penalty for attending boot camp but at the core I don't think that is why he was suspended.
I don't think it was crystal clear to anyone who's children were told that there would be no penalty for attending boot camp.
The lawsuit idea is ridiculous and it's just a convenient cover for trying to explain away the insubordination.
I think he should have been fired for insubordination because no matter what you think you know there was a pronouncement made that there would be no penalty imposed on players from and sport that went to boot camp. You need to look into that a little further.
Why do you think he's been suspended?
If any coach is fired it wouldn't matter a lick to most people. It's a school not a football factory.
I was just told by a player that the kids that went on the ROTC trip absolutely knew they were not playing. There was no question at all. Abraham was very clear. no one even gave this a second thought until Vinny Gilroy created a scene during game, and then yelled at Kane and Leuthauser after the game.

Why can't this just be as obvious as it is? JP Gilroy doesn't play, daddy is angry his future hall of famer is watching the other kids play, the team wins big which brings out the Bad Vin, who then abuses his position on the school board and convinces his friend Jones to boot the coach? if it smells like crap, its crap.

ND Fan just keeps missing the point here. On purpose, I hope. No one can be that obtuse.
Enormous ego, self importance, and a big mouth always trumps justice at ND.
The administration is so transparent.

The seasons over. There is a taint. The record books will have an asterisk.for his year. Make no mistake about it, this is not just a football issue, this is a life issue. Notre dame will have to work very hard in the future to overcome the bad reputation created by the acts of its irresponsible administration which includes its school board president. This tirade by the player parent is the act of a spoiled brat.

I submit that when you are the president of a school board that you have a responsibility all of the people that you serve and not just to yourself and family. It is the school district that you serve. Your thoughtless acts and directions have caused significant damages and you should have the courage to resign immediately or in the least come out and make a public apology admitting your mistake. After all you have only the support of 1 other set of parents, the roc is , whose son, agrees that coach Abraham did nothing wrong

Went to school and played sports at nd. The administration and vin gilroy should be ashamed of themselves...... I am sure there was others involved in this decision too. Byron did the right thing.

I think the parents need to follow the coach in Utah. He suspended the whole team for a week. Parents are raising mama boys. Suck it up parents

Unfortunately most of these comments display all of your ignorance as Gilroy is absolutely not the president of any school board. Not that I would expect anyone on this site to do their homework. I'm ashamed I'm posting myself but really?! If you think a coach was simply suspended for benching kids who missed a few practices you should be embarrassed of your ignorance. No school would bring themselves under all this criticism for just that.
