Napa HS (California) may have to cancel season


The Napa Unified School Board is considering canceling the 2017 Napa High School football season if it can’t find a new head coach by the middle of June.  ABC 7 news is reporting that last Thursday the school board announced that it will cancel the season if a new head coach isn’t hired by June 15th.

That announcement is the latest twist since the school and football program was rocked by a hazing scandal last fall.  The scandal involving over a dozen players led to head coach Troy Mott and his entire staff resigning in March.

The Napa Valley Register reported last month that Napa police  have referred fourteen players and one coach to the district attorney for possible charges in the case.
