District finds no evidence of bullying

High school football: A Texas high school football coach whose team won its last game 91-0 said a district investigation has found “no grounds” to support a bullying complaint filed by a parent of the losing team.

Aledo coach Tim Buchanan said administrators told him they found no evidence of bullying before or during Friday’s lopsided victory over Fort Worth Western Hills. State law required the district to investigate the complaint. A copy of the complaint obtained by The AP accused coaches of “not easing up when the game was in hand.”
