High School Soccer Coach Gets Fired After Dressing Up As a Clown During Practice


A high school soccer coach in Minnesota got himself in so much trouble after he tried to have some fun with his team during a recent practice and now he’s out of a job because of it.

Ben Hildre coached the junior varsity girl’s soccer team at St. Francis High School, and was recently fired after a photo of him wearing a clown mask on school property began making the rounds on social media.

While the varsity players loved it, other students didn’t think it was hilarious and mistook the joke as a threat because of the recent reports around the country of people threatening to shoot up schools or cause chaos in neighborhoods while dressed as clowns.

His varsity players are trying their hardest to get their coach his job back.
