Do you think if a club has an issue of a coach having inappropriate relations with a child it...

    I will not get into names (YET) but Albion SC (San Diego) had a coach in FL last month that was coaching one of their girl DA teams and was found to be having an "inappropriate relationship" with an under aged girl on one of his teams. Albion called the coach and told him to pack his stuff and come home, they fired him when he got back to SD.

    Problem is this is not a total surprise to Albion because this coach was accused of the same type of stuff on the East Coast about 17 years ago, a couple parents brought this to Albion's attention about 3 years ago (RE: coach having been in court accused of an inappropriate relationship with a minor.) Albion's response was that they feel it is not important because it was unfounded. Ok, but what we all want to know is.. has Albion issued a warning to all the past families that this coach has come in contact with their children? I am going to guess they have not because they do not want to taint their reputation and will not risk any loss of money.
    What are your thoughts as parents?

    They should have reported the coach to the police and informed the parents right away.

    A trusted coach victimizing a minor? Club knew about it and covered it up? Gosh this sounds awfully familiar....

    Do you have any information that Albion covered it up? Sounds like they found out about it and fired the coach immediately?

    OP said the coach had previously been accused and in court, and the club was aware of this when he was hired.
    As far as my reference to a club covering up evidence of a coach victimizing a 14-year-old player, I am describing allegations of a situation at another club.

    Well to be fair, any one of us can be accused of something they didn't do and have to appear in court to defend yourself.

    good
    I don’t give a crap about fair. We’re talking about the safety and well-being of kids. If you’re a DOC of a club and you’re aware that a candidate for a coaching position has stood trial for molesting a child, would you hire him? If you do hire him, at the very least you have an obligation to notify the parents.

    I do not know if they called the Police but I know as of New Years night when the story came out at a get together NON of the parents on the team or past teams had been notified.
    I think the first obligation from Albion is to notify all the families that have ever had this Albion coach around their children.

    This is one of the stupidest things I have heard on this forum.

    Albion hired him because he has great college contacts. They did not show any concern whether it was true or not. I believe in giving second chances especially when someone has not been found guiltly BUT Albion and all clubs for that matter should have protocols in place to prevent an opportunity from occurring. For example, parents should be required to go to a meeting where the club discusses what is appropriate contact with a coach. In this case texting was used. All clubs should have mandates that no correspondence is allowed with a player unless the parent is also included and that any violation will result in firing. Obviously other protective measures should have been put in place for travel with a zero tolerance policy for both coaches and players.

    ...furthermore if a coach has had to defend himself in court against accusations of molesting a minor player, why would he seek out another identical position coaching young girls, across the country? Why not coach boys? Or adults? It should raise multiple warning flags. If the club knew, and I don’t see how they couldn’t since records should be thoroughly checked, they’re liable.

    Really, then 17 years coincidentally he is acused of the exact same type of conduct? Hmm:(

    One of the cornerstones of our democracy, that you are innocent until proven guilty, is one of the stupidest things you have heard on the forum? You must not proofread your posts.

    There are a whole lot of assumptions being made here.

    It sounds like you know the coach and why he was hired, and what he did wrong. Why don't you tell us what you know?

    In the 17 years between acu
    I’m going to take a wild guess and say he went further then just texting in the 17 year window of direct contact with children. Oh ya did I forget to mention he worked with troubled youth for the county of San Diego (CPS) also in between all of this?
    Albion has an obligation to send out a club wide warning emails weeks ago, along with direct phone calls to every single family that has ever come in contact with this pig!

    How can you blame the club when you feel the need to protect his identity?

    Why people like yourself try and get off topic and take a conversation down some argumentative path always blows me away! “Protect his identity” WTH are you talking about?
    I’m exposing the problem as a warning for anyone that has any contact with Albion 100% for the families & children. I don’t need to name the person until Albion takes action and gets in contact with all the families first. If Albion keeps on ignoring the issue I will then get all the details of this person and expose the scum bag.
    This isn’t about getting back at the pig as much as it is trying to warn & help the families address a potential problem within their own families first before it turns into a $hit storm!

    So far we don't know who it is, what he did, or what Albion is doing about it. Keep on exposing.
