Carl Turner claims that administration at the school instructed him to stop running the score up on teams, Turner decided to continue to coach the way he coaches. Running up the score is one of the most highly debated topics in sports today. Teams and coaches from youth leagues to professional sport franchises have all come under fire for actions seen as unsportsmanlike.
In this case, is a 26 point margin of victory running up the score? It's all open to interpretation.
In an official statement the school claimed that Turner said he wanted to spend more time with family and decided to not return as coach, however Turner says this is untrue and was clearly told that his contract was not being renewed for running the score up after being told to stop.
Should coaches stop trying to score when the game is clearly in hand? Is it different at the professional level versus youth leagues?
