Steubenville Football Coach Gets Two-Year Contract With School System Renewed

accountability, noun — the quality or state of being  accountable;  especially: an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions

It must be nice to be Steubenville, Ohio, football coach Reno Saccoccia. Coach Saccoccia is required by law to report child abuse and is said to have known about the rape of an unconcious teenaged girl by two Steubenville football players — a text message from Trent Mays, one of the two football players convicted of rape last month, said “I got Reno. He took care of it and shit ain’t gonna happen, even if they did take it to court. Like he was joking about it so I’m not worried.” Saccoccia also did not punish the players involved nearly harshly enough, allowing them to play eight games of the 10-game season. Yet he has had a two-year contract with Steubenville City Schools renewed; in addition to coaching the Steubenville football team, which is a separate contract, Saccoccia is newly confirmed as the director of administrative services, a position which requires Board of Education approval.

In other words, even though this man is roundly considered to have done next to nothing to hold the convicted rapists on his football team accountable for their actions, the city of Steubenville still wants to give him a paycheck. It’s mind-boggling. [WTOV9The Atlantic Wire]
