An Alabama high school football coach has been suspended for 10 days after delivering what can only be described as a racist and homophobic rant in a classroom, all of which was caught in an audio recording.
Grisham led Lauderdale County to the semifinals of the state playoffs in 2012 and has taught in the county school system since 1991. As part of his punishment, Reason.com reports that Grisham will not teach his fifth-period psychology class for the rest of the school year. He will also have to attend sensitivity training.
“The board’s range is to recommend doing nothing to termination,” James Irby, the attorney for the Lauderdale school board told the Times Daily earlier this week. “And, of course, they have everything in between, such as suspension with or without pay or merely a warning.”
