Coaches suspended due to excessive rant at youth football game

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 - 2:30pm

An investigation sparked by a halftime rant that was caught video has resulted in the suspension and probation of two youth league football coaches.

“The coaches will be suspended for next week’s games and will be on probation for the rest of this season and the next,” Cheryl Michelet, Director of Communications for BREC, explained.

The disciplinary action comes as the result of an incident that was recorded by a witness on Sunday, Oct. 21. It happened at a youth football game at BREC’s Perkins Road Park.

“We were playing softball and we heard someone screaming very loud from the football field,” the concerned witness who video recorded the incident, explained. “I walked over to see what was going on and it was a coach who was just really getting on these kids hard.

“Everybody was in shock,” he continued. “It was way over the top and he was telling them things you just don’t tell a young kid beginning in sports.”

NBC33 News brought the video to BREC and Louisiana Youth Football. As a result, they immediately launched the investigation.

“After the first three seconds of the video, we knew they had gone too far,” Leroy Hollins II, Director of the Louisiana Youth Football, explained.

The Louisiana Youth Football is a non-profit organization that formed a partnership with BREC in 2005. The group organizes 77 registered teams, with over 2,600 student-athletes (football players and cheerleaders) ranging between 5-13 years old.

“The coaches included have to go through a certification program,” Dale Auzenne, Assistant Superintendent for Programs and Facilities with BREC, explained. “That program includes things such as sportsmanship, code of ethics, practice planning, scheduling, concussion training – so these coaches not only go through extensive training, but they are given a background check as well.”

BREC tells NBC33 News today that the coaches involved will have to undergo recertification before they are allowed to coach again in the future.

“We do not want this to put a black eye on all the hard work we’ve done over the years,” Hollins said. “We’ve always been on the cutting edge of protecting our kids.”
