T on a coach for screaming at Own Team?

I was scorer at a Boys Freshman game. The V coach screamed at the top of his voice the entire game including things like "You're all playing like crap." "You better hope I don't make you walk back home." "I have never had a worse team." All this from a team that was killing the home team and has a very good record.

Ever T a coach for this or warn him?

The rules do not prohibit being a jerk.

Actually, it's in the books somewhere (or it used to be) that you have the right to T this coach, but you'd better be judicious about it. I wouldn't unless there was serious profanity or downright abuse involved -- ie something aimed at an individual, or any racial or gender insults.

Juulie's right.

1. Comments to his team were obviously meant to show up officials.
2. Comments involved profanity.
3. Comments were racially charged.

Those three could earn a T. The rest of it? I'm not getting involved.

I did see our varsity girls coach get T'd for saying, "We might as well go back to Jr. High!" We thought he was talking about the team, the official thought otherwise.

I should have T'd a coach last year when he kicked a chair from the bench and it landed on the first row of bleachers behind the bench. I knew he was mad at his team and not us, but I still should have handled it looking back now.

The funny thing is that a mom from his team came down behind the bench and ripped him for it during the game.

So, coach calls a TO and huddles up his players. While you are reporting this to the table, you overhear him tell his players "Listen, there isn't anything you can do about the crappy officiating here, they are against you" or something along those lines. Pretty obvious he isn't saying it directly to you, just venting to his players.

T him up or walk away and pretend you didn't hear it?

If it's just to the players, skip it. He's hurting them more than he's hurting you.

Boys Freshman

I would report what I observed to the local AD and let him/her relay the observations to the V Team's AD. I know that all the local AD's want feedback on their coaching staff conduct (Positive or Negative). Many times the AD just can't stick around to observe all the action in every sport/activity.

I passed on giving a coach a T for almost the exact same thing last year. I reported the timeout and I hear him say something like "Don't worry about it, it's his first time on the court" to his players. I probably should have whacked him looking back on it.

No and I would not start with what you just described.

I'm likely to T this one. Talking to his players doesn't give him free reign to say what he wants.
