Wussie Nation: Rutgers Football Player Claims Defensive Coach Bullied and Screamed at Him
Another football player came out this week complaining about an abusive team environment.
Rutgers cornerback Jevon Tyree accused defensive coordinator Dave Cohen of bullying him. Tyree claims Cohen got into his face and called him a “p*ssy” and “b*tch.” His family seeks disciplinary action against Cohen.
BULLY FOR YOU: Rutgers defensive coordinator Dave Cohen, shown as Hofstra head coach in 2007, is being accused of bullying, according to a report on NJ.com. (NY Post)
The New York Daily News reported:
Rutgers, only seven months removed from a bullying scandal that garnered national attention, is in the hot seat again.
The football team’s defensive coordintaor is being accused of getting in a student-athlete’s face, calling him a “p—-” and a “b—-” and threatening to head-butt him during a study hall session in April — the same month men’s basketball coach Mike Rice was fired for abusive behavior and language.
Cornerback Jevon Tyree — who has since quit the team — and his parents, Mark and Clarice, have sought disciplinary action against Dave Cohen, according to a report on NJ.com. The incident, which the 19-year-old said occurred in front of approximiately 10 teammates and a tutor, led to his being excluded from team meetings and not having a shot at playing time, according to the redshirt freshman.
“I really think disciplinary action should happen, almost to the point where (Cohen) should get fired. I really do,” Mark Tyree told NJ.com. “That’s how bad it is, especially for the damage he’s done to Jevon.”
The parents said they met with both Cohen and head coach Kyle Flood. “(Cohen) tried to apologize,” Mark Tyree said, “and I was like, ‘Well, the apology really isn’t accepted. We want Jevon to get an opportunity. He’s been battling this abuse and it’s been trickling down to your other coaches on defense.’ “
Tyree’s father said athletic director Julie Hermann, who’s been accused of verbal abuse in the past, has refused to grant him a meeting.
This is what happens when the left runs rampant in a society.
Now coaches can’t scream at players anymore.
