“He can coach wherever he wants, but not at a TCDSB school,” [TCDSB spokesperson John] Yan said Wednesday.
In case you’re wondering, TCDSB is the Toronto Catholic District School Board, meaning Ford is now banned from coaching at any Catholic school in the city.
The review was prompted by an interview with Sun News in which Ford made comments that were called inaccurate by Don Bosco’s parent council, many teachers at the Etobicoke school, and even the offensive coordinator on Ford’s coaching staff. Among other contested statements, Ford said that Eagles players would not attend school if not for the football program, that many players “come from gangs” and from “broken homes,” and that Don Bosco is a “tough school” in a “tough area.”
I don’t think there’s a need for any follow-up commentary here — just another day in Ford Nation. I just can’t help but wonder how he’s going to use his newly freed time — attending City Hall and doing his job, maybe?
