We had a gym teacher at Roseville High School who bragged in class one day while teaching "I only got into a fight once and I broke the guys jaw." Is that supposed to be an education topic??
Witch Hunt. Parents 4 Responsible Coaching was created because Felicia Busch (Google her and her organization) can't come to terms with the fact that other kids might actually be better hockey players than her sons.
Felicia Busch's son got cut and now she wants the coaches' heads. This is retaliation plain and simple.
Pioneer Press has the entire coach's response to the allegations with documented praise for the coach from Felicia Busch regarding his handling the tryouts for her son. Apparently, there wasn't an issue until her son got cut.
This whole situation at RAHS is so far out of line on so many levels! What about the rest of the RAHS families that should have a voice in this? There are many more people in support of Coach Pauletti and others in this witch hunt then are against him (them). Do the rest of us not have a say? How can so much power be given to someone that has a history of dragging others through the mud to benefit her own agenda? It is very sad that the rest of the student body (and families of those involved) suffers because of someone's inability to see the WHOLE picture!
Update: that was in the '80s and a health class he was "teaching." How about that Education MN?? There are other stories too...read up on the girl on the hockey bus back in the '80s!
Parents are crazy today. Not everyone can be on a high school team -- this isn't your park board's t-ball team -- and that's part of life. This mother will probably organize Parents 4 Responsible Hiring when her son is denied a job. It's high school hockey -- get over it and move on.
Parents have always been way too invested with their kids sports, this hasnt changed in decades. Although i dont agree with that, dont be a HS coach if you cannot deal with that aspect of your chosen career.
What is not mentioned in this article are the specific things he has been accused of, demoting good coaches to make room for buddies, pandering to his friends and putting their kids on the team, on top of the fact that for a city that has tremedous infrastructure for hockey (and an extremely successful women's team) he has not been able to build a very good program. New blood could very well be what the Roseville Boys program needs.
