It seems like a no-brainer to suspend a student athlete off a team for being in trouble. Colleges do it. Pros do it. Why not public education? Even if you’re not convicted, you’re still representing an institution and playing for them is a privilege. Hell, I got thrown off a football team in 7th grade for not getting a haircut. Maybe if some coaches don’t want to teach responsibility or set an example, they should be thrown off the team.
