Faced with reports that members of his team were cyber-bullying a fellow student, a Roosevelt, Utah high school football coach suspended the entire squad, not letting them reform until they agreed to an extensive set of conditions.
KSL-TV reported on Wednesday (http://www.ksl.com/?sid=26993261&nid=148) that Union High coach Matt Labrum disbanded his team on Sept. 20, citing both the bullying and academic and attitude problems plaguing other members. Labrum also chose to tell the 80 students to turn their jerseys and gear in following a Union loss, but denied that was a factor in the decision.
“It just felt like everything was going in a direction that we didn’t want our young men going,” Labrum told KSL. “We felt like we needed to make a stand.”

And now we wait for the parents to sue for hurting their kids feelings.

Well done by the coach IMO.
