Video: Parent takes seat on team bench, is kicked off by coach
April 25, 2017 / Athletic Administration • CoachingWe’re accustomed to seeing parents berate coaches from the stands, but actually taking a seat on the team bench during a game to voice a complaint takes some guts.
The video below was posted on Twitter by Rivals.com national basketball analyst Eric Bossi. There’s no indication to what prompted the incident, but in the video a coach can be seen telling another man to leave the bench during a game.
