West Valley High Players, Parents Question Suspension of Assistant Football Coaches

Fairbanks North Star Borough School District

The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District has decided to continue the suspension of West Valley High School assistant football coaches who were at a pre season training session during which 3 players nearly drown. Head coach Roy Hessner subsequently resigned, and 8 assistant coaches were suspended.  As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, many players and parents feel the assistant coaches have been treated unfairly.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
