A high school football coach allegedly exposed himself to players when he put his penis in a hot dog bun and said, “You think that is a big dog – take a look at this.”
The Spokesman-Review reports:
A couple of weeks after the camp, a Ferris player came forward and said that while Sharkey was grilling, he turned with his exposed penis inside a hot dog bun. Sharkey said, “You think that is a big dog – take a look at this,” according to school records that listed multiple different versions of the same quote.
While the coach got a written reprimand and was allowed to coach this past fall, school officials placed him on administrative leave Feb. 1 after more players claimed to have seen the hot dog incident and other students brought up separate incidents of questionable behavior by the 11-year teacher and coach.
Some of those other incidents include drinking alcohol in front of players at the camp, and calling a female student a “puck slut” or “puck bunny,” because she was friends with hockey players.
Sharkey denies all the allegations and vows to fight the charges.
“They have been specific that I can’t comment on anything until the investigation is done,” he said. “When this is done, I’ll be happy to talk about my teaching and coaching affairs.”
