Times have changed and our administrators must be held accountable. I'm no big WSSU fan, but the coach seemed to have his heart in the right place to protect his student athlete. So sad.

The gun allegation may have a deeper lasting effect on future employment. :no:

As a CSA ot appears he is mandated to report to campus police but did not. That there alone is grounds for termination.  Biggest mistake was sitting on this hoping it would blow over. Instead it blew up......on him.

I agree with others; although it is sad for him to lose his job in this way. . . it is definitely justified.

I think the school acted far too fast. He did what 99% of the people on this forum would have done. It easy to look back afterwards and say what he should have done. This move makes my Rams look worse than we already are. With so much going on with our sports program, we do something stupid like this. This coach was good for WSSU and his players, regardless of his won/lost record. He is loyal and represents stability for a program that's on very shaky grounds.

Coach Boulware doesn’t desire this type of humiliation for the Rams that he loves.  WSSU has been on shaky ground for the past several years.  From the Chancellor to house-keeping shaky ground.  I hope your AD hire will have some tough skin.

3 weeks is too fast?

I wouldn't be surprised if the recent rape allegation that allegedly went unreported by the A&T cheerleading coaches played a part in the firing.  That also had Clery implications.

Boulware also implicated 2 members of his staff in this, including his successor.  I wonder how much the administration looked into his story before appointing him interim HC.

Interesting. 

Somebody wants him out.

Agreed. Why go to straight firing him past suspension, probation, or any other progressive disciplinary measure in a lead up to firing?  It's not like he abused a student or misappropriated department funds or anything like that.

Come on now, it has been discussed on this board many times about how WSSU fans have been clamoring for his removal.  With the pressure placed on the Admin. to do something, Boulware dropped this in the admin. lap and they saw an opportunity to remove him and not have to pay, which IMHO was the key factor in making the move.  Get a new coach and not have to pay the old one that had two seasons left on contract.  This was a layup for the admin.

The President referred to the persons involved as FOOTBALL PLAYERS not the oft use  STUDENT ATHLETES.   Hearsay, there was a gun. and a substance in the garbage can with a brown residue resembling marijauna .  Where is the gun? Where is the residue?  Who is this President?  He wanted to fire this coach and those simple headed STUDENTS who are athletes helped.  As for the interim coach, what choice did he have.  He was appointed to take over the team, which he cares about too.  I have seen worse.

If Boulware has a good lawyer he can beat this and get paid. But, the issue with these cases is most plaintiff's don't have the money to ride out appeal and counter appeal. The other issue goes beyond the expressed guns, drugs etc. When you have team mates that jeopardize their coaches because of stupid actions and egotistical hate for other black men then you have a disconnect of sorts between coaches and players. That is not to say players didn't fight back in the day...but they settled it on the field or behind the building. A couple of punches and tackling, but no guns and crazy stuff. The two players should be booted from the team by the interim HC.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
