A Texas school administrator says an assistant football coach who allegedly ordered players to strike a referee during a game no longer works for the district.

The principal and head football coach at John Jay High School told state officials Thursday they believe assistant Mack Breed told players to retaliate against an official in the closing minutes of a game earlier this month.

Story continues below video.


John Jay players told their coaches earlier in the game that referees had been directing racial slurs at them.

The referee who was struck by the players has denied those allegations.

Brian Woods, the school superintendent, didn't specify at a state hearing in Austin whether the assistant coach had been fired or resigned. The players who struck the referee have been suspended to an alternative school.
