Sports has no place for any kind of racist behavior, especially on the field. A Massachusetts high school fired its football coach after reports surfaced that the team used anti-Semitic language, including a mention of Auschwitz, in its on-field playcalling during a recent game. The school has “severed ties” with head coach Dave Maimaron.

“The outrage is real, warranted, and we hear it,” Duxbury High School’s administration said in an emailed statement. “The fact that members of our school community used such offensive language, including anti-Semitic language, is horrifying and disappointing.”

Maimaron released a statement this week in which he apologized.

“On behalf of the staff and players of the Duxbury High School football team, I want to extend my apology for the insensitive, crass and inappropriate language used in the game on March 12th,” he said. He called the language “careless, unnecessary and most importantly hurtful on its face — inexcusable.”

This guy deserves to never work again on a football team.

A certified piece of crap.
