Princeton Lacrosse Coach Cheap Shots Brown Player During Game, Immediately Put On Administrative Leave
Princeton head lacrosse coach Chris Bates has been placed on administrative leave after inexplicably elbowing a Brown player who was on his way back to the bench during Saturday’s game.
According to Inside Lacrosse, this is how the incident transpired:
Brown player John Yozzo-Scaperrotta brought the ball into the box and collided with a Princeton player, drawing a flag from the referee while falling to the ground. He got back up and began running to the substitution box, when Bates — who was already in the field of play and trying to talk with the ref trailing behind — appeared to put his right shoulder and elbow toward Yozzo-Scaperrotta, colliding with his right shoulder
Bates then walks toward the other end of the bench away from the substitution area. Brown would score with the flag down, then go on to outscore Princeton 12-2 en route to the victory.
I bet this dude makes his wife watch his game film in college. Some coaches just don’t know when to hang up the cleats.
