91-0 football game prompts bullying lawsuit against winning coach


FORT WORTH, Texas — A parent at a Texas high school that lost a football game 91-0 has filed a bullying complaint against the winning coach.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Aledo High School coach Tim Buchanan learned of the online complaint against him Saturday, the day after his team beat Western Hills in a 4A matchup.

State law requires Aledo’s principal to investigate the complaint and prepare a report.

Western Hills coach John Naylor told the paper he disagreed with the bullying allegation.

Buchanan’s team is averaging 69.3 points a game and is on its way to a 7-0 record. He pulled his starters after 21 plays during the game, and the clock ran uninterrupted beginning in the third quarter.
