“The Coach Was Told To Make The Team Whiter”
That’ s the claim by Dennis Young, attorney for fired high school basketball coach Joe McLaughlin (h/t Crooks and Liars).
McLoughlin was fired in June after serving as the head basketball coach at Collingswood High School for 14 years and winning a state championship.
Dozens of current and former students as well as parents gathered at a heated school board meeting on June 25, to fight to save McLoughlin’s job, but they were unsuccessful. The board made a unanimous vote to fire McLoughlin, but gave no official reason.
Supporters claim the school administration was upset that African American players got more time on the court than white players.Click here for reuse options!
