Opinion: CVU football coach needs to take it down a notch
I am a Middlebury Tiger football fan and what I saw at the game in Hinesburg against the Champlain Valley Union High School varsity team on Sept. 27 from their coach, Jim Provost, was entirely uncalled for.
When the backup quarterback threw a pass that got intercepted and run back for a TD and the CVU coach started yelling at the top of his lungs at the QB, we could hear everything he said to him at about 100 feet away. At that point a parent of one of the CVU Bucs cheerleaders went over the fence to try to calm the coach down, but got asked to the leave the game. CVU and Middlebury fans were both upset at what took place at this game.
Personally I feel maybe it is time for Jim to retire and watch the game for what it is supposed to look like, kids having fun and learning from their mistakes, not to have their own coach get in their face and tear them apart in front of all the fans.
Take a chill pill, Jim.
