An Arizona high school football coached named Devin Dourisseau resigned this week after accusations that he was running up the score during a game. I am not lying you cannot make this up.
Devin Dourisseau was the head coach of La Joya Community High School in Avondale when the team defeated Glendale Cooper Canyon 60-0 on Friday. Dourisseau told the Arizona Republic he stepped down after he was accused of “wrongdoing.”
“I was threatened to be removed from the sideline for our (upcoming) game against Valley Vista if we scored another point (in the Glendale Cooper Canyon game),” he told the newspaper. “The AD and principal had a meeting with me this morning and basically told me I was in the wrong.”
“We had one special teams score and two defensive scores in the second half. My first team only scored once and we ran the ball with my 2nd and 3rd team running back and scored.”
He added: “Per the conversation, I stepped down because I was accused of wrongdoing and running up the score.”
This is soft, and I am sorry. You play to win, if their team cannot stop them “Oh Well” get better. I do not believe it is running it up if you win 60-0, if it was 60-0 and you are throwing bombs to try to go up I could see it, but this was not the case here it sounds. Even the opposing coach said he did not feel they were trying to run up the score.
