Glad to see the ass-end of this ass. Horrible person, abrasive and paranoid to nth degree. Gave black coaches a bad name.

It was about time! He was rude, he needed to be a roll model for the students, not show them how to use bad language. He also has to may personal problems. He shouldn't be around kids. Good job to the new Principal, finally someone wasen't intimidated by his big mouth.

thank goodness he is gone. i've been on the chain crew when duarte has visited our school and he has one of the most foul mouths i've ever heard. every other word from him and his coaches was the f-word. i'm surprised that the parents allowed him to stay as long as he did. kudos to the principal for firing him. it's the only "f-word" that makes sense in this case.

Yeah, unsportmanlike conduct is this guys middle name. He would run up the scores of the games mercilessly. He was terrible. Students in his classroom and on the field will be better off without him. I hope he finds a teaching job somewhere else. Should we warn the other districts or just be glad to have him gone.
