John Jay Assistant Coach Admits to Telling Students to Make Referee ‘Pay’
In a report from ESPN's "Outside The Lines," San Antonio area football coach Mack Breed admitted he had instructed his players to attack a referee for apparent bad calls and racial slurs.
KSAT reports that Breed admitted to John Jay school principal Robert Harris in a letter that he "directed the students to make the referee pay for his racial comments and calls."
Sophomore Victor Rojas (15) and senior Michael Moreno (17) recently went on Good Morning America to proclaim their innocence. They said the coach had instructed them to retaliate, but many people didn't want to believe it was true.
With this new information coming out, it will be interesting to see what twists and turns this case takes. The referee has also threatened to press charges as well.
The University Interscholastic League will also have its own meeting today in Round Rock, Texas where it will address the issue.
