Abstract: This study is an investigation of the legality of the dismissal of a teacher/coach from only the interscholastic coaching responsibilities. As long as American society is considered "sports minded," coaches will be examined by those individuals who feel qualified to determine the staffing and conduct of interscholastic sports programs. The typical process of community, parental, and administrative involvement with interscholastic sports has allowed the peripherally involved to approach, criticize and eventually ask for the dismissal of coaches not meeting certain expectations.
