Coaches Beware of Participating with Players in Practice
Sawyer, Tonya L.
Physical Educator, v75 n1 p158-162 2018
A Missouri court of appeals reversed a trial court and restored a plaintiff's claim that a head football coach and an assistant coach were liable for assault and battery when the assistant coach donned football pads and participated in a practice in which he injured the plaintiff. In the same ruling, however, the court affirmed the finding that dismissed the claim of negligence against the two defendants.
