ELK RIVER, Minn. (AP) — The Elk River School board has voted unanimously to discipline six football coaches.
But the board also assured a crowd of more than 100 parents and boosters Tuesday night the coaches will be on the field for Friday night's game against Rogers.
The Star Tribune of Minneapolis reports the board did not give the particulars of the discipline — or the rationale behind it. The board cited data practices rules.
But the action followed hazing incidents last month, when police say several football players were held down by teammates and poked in the buttocks with the handle of a broom or mop. The players were clothed and wearing football pads.
The board voted last week to boot four players from the team, suspend three others for four games and two for one game each.
