A Texas high school football coach who was placed on administrative leave last November after being accused of making racially offensive comments to black players has resigned.

Teacher and coach Todd Campbell of Centennial High School was placed on leave after 50 parents and community members met with Centennial principal Randy Spain and other school officials about Campbell’s remarks to mostly black players, Dallas News previously reported. Those complaining about Campbell said he was making racially stereotypical comments to black players, although no details were released.

“We are unable to discuss specific details of the allegations, the investigation into the allegations or the findings,” spokeswoman Shana Wortham said in a statement at the time. “It is the district’s expectation that its staff conduct themselves in a professional manner and that all staff interactions with students are respectful and reflective of that professionalism.”

The resignation follows an investigation by the school district.

“The resignation is effective as of February 29, 2016,” Frisco ISD said in a written statement, according WFAA. “The District and Coach Campbell believe this action is in the best interest of both parties. As this matter involves student and personnel information that is confidential, we are unable to discuss specific details of the allegations, the investigation into the allegations or the findings.”

This is totally unacceptable, teachers have so much power  and what they say if believed can destroy self esteem. We should all be watchful of our children's ,teachers ,coaches and all who have the power to crumble or build them!
