High School Football Coach Resigns After Violently Pushing Son Who Told Him To’Shut Up’ (VIDEO)
A high school football coach won’t be partaking in coaching duties any longer after he elected to resign after video showed him shoving a player on the team from behind during a football game. As it turned out, it was actually his own son.
Pate Harrison, who resigned from Elba High School on Monday, had been on leave since an incident involving his son at a football game two weeks ago where a video showed him sprinting towards the player in anger and shoving him in the back.
Harrison says he lost his cool after his son told him to shut up, adding that there was no excuse for what he did.
An interim head coach, Glen Johnson, will lead the team the rest of the season.
