The head football coach and an assistant coach at Harding High School have been temporarily relieved of their duties following an alleged altercation between the two men.
Eddie Santiago and Jamesie Codrington are suspended without pay pending an investigation. School officials say the alleged altercation took place following Saturday's game against Norwalk High School.
Police say Santiago argued with Codrington before the game. When it was over, the assistant coach told officers that the head coach assaulted his son, who is a player on the team.
Authorities say Santiago denied assaulting Codrington's son, explaining that he was only trying to motivate players after a losing game. Officers say they wrote up a report but made no arrests.
The school district's interim superintendent said Tuesday that the two coaches had to be benched.
There are now three coaches at this school in some sort of trouble. Officials say basketball coach Charles Clemons was put on leave from his job as an elementary school teacher not long ago after being arrested for allegedly leaving his 4-year-old son home alone.
