Fired Pine-Richland head football coach shares letter from district outlining dismissal

ALLEGHENY COUNTY, Pa. — Fired Pine-Richland head football coach Eric Kasperowicz shared a letter the district issued to him outlining why he was let go.

The letter states there was an investigation into reports of alleged hazing, bullying, harassment and/or intimidation in the football program. The letter said there were “rites of passage” that “occurred in and around the football program, particularly in the locker room for years,” there was “no consistent approach to locker room supervision by staff,” and that there were “at least five off-the-field fights.”
