Homophobic coaches to be re-suspended?

Two coaches who allegedly used homophobic slurs to taunt pre-teens they coached in baseball, and who allegedly encouraged other kids to do the same, may soon see their overturned suspension reinstated. We originally reported about these two coaches and their overturned suspension last week. Now the city council is not pleased (probably after outcry from parents), and they are looking to make someone pay.

Meer asked that all council members receive copies of the pertinent documents. If, after studying the material, the council doesn't agree with the Park Board decision and finds fault with the coaches' behavior, Meer said they would consider passing a resolution asking Mayor Chuck Oberlie to have board members Phil Freese and Bryant Dabney removed from the board for voting to overturn the suspensions.
