A Fort LeBoeuf assistant football coach has been fired following conduct “unacceptable and inconsistent with the advancement of sportsmanship”.

Fort LeBoeuf School District superintendent Rick Emerick released a statement Wednesday evening, saying “Given this a personnel matter, I am unable to discuss specific details.  However, I can share that an assistant football coach was relieved of duty yesterday because of conduct that was deemed unacceptable and inconsistent with the advancement of sportsmanship within our athletic programs.” 

The district did not release the name of the coach that was fired. 

Late Wednesday, General McLane Superintendent Matt Lane released the following statement: "General McLane recently became aware of inappropriate conduct by a member of the FLB football coaching staff. GM conducted an investigation and shared its findings with the Ft. LeBoeuf School District, who conducted its own investigation and acted accordingly. Although the action was unprofessional and violated the spirit of sportsmanship, the GM administration and football coaching staff do not believe at this time that the infraction in any way impacted the result of the game on Friday night."

Thursday, Lane confirmed to Erie News Now that the district does not plan to protest the outcome of the game to District 10, referring to the above statement that there is no belief the result of the game was impacted.
