Mike Remillard was a high-school basketball coach, until he decided to act like one. The Associated Press reports:
A high school coach who told his players at halftime to reach into their pants to "check their manhood" before returning to the basketball court was fired.

Mike Remillard was confronted after Leavitt Area High School Principal Patrick Hartnett learned that the coach told his players that the Jan. 23 game against Mount Ararat "was about who had the biggest (male genitalia) in town," Hartnett said in a statement.

"He then required his players to all stand up and put their hands down their pants and check their manhood," Hartnett said. All but one player followed the coach's instructions.
Remillard now says the tactic wasn't appropriate, and "I'm paying the price for it." And that's a shame.
