Not sure of all the facts, but it sounds suspicious to me. Why would a student's family randomly have it out for a coach? I've seen MV b-ball games before, and this girl is definitely one of the best players in the Bay Area.

Auclair called the 17-year-old "a disrespectful b-word." or witch.

The coach should be reprimanded for that alone, and then everyone should move on.
