Andover High School is going after yet another coach with an impressive track record for winning:
Andover High School boys’ volleyball coach E.J. Perry has been put on administrative leave after “credible enough” allegations were reported to school administrators last week, the athletic director announced in a letter to parents on Friday. Perry, also the Andover High head football coach and a teacher at West Elementary School, has coached 18 seasons in Andover, six of those in volleyball. His job as a teacher and as football coach will not be affected by the administrative leave.
Andover Athletic Director Bill Martin said in a letter to parents on Friday that Perry was placed on leave due to “coaching practices.”
“Allegations were brought forward and found to be credible enough to prompt the administration to conduct an investigation into a number of coaching practices used by Coach Perry,” he said. “This investigation will be conducted in a timely manner and we will update you on the progress as often as possible.”
Martin added that no determination had been reached yet about the claims brought against Perry, and that Perry was not to be in contact with students or their parents.
Looks like Andover High School is basically trying to make it so that no one ever applies for a teaching or coaching position there ever again. Why would they? So they can be publicly blasted with unfounded allegations of……something? All it takes in this town is for one whiny bitch parent to run to Bill Martin and administration and complain that the successful coach is being mean to them. The gutless administrators will then remove the coach, publicly humiliate them, and hurt the team in the process by taking away their coach during the middle of a season.
It just so happens that EJ Perry is one of the best coaches in the state. His son EJ is one of the most prolific quarterbacks in state history, and almost all of the teams he has ever coached have had high levels of success.
They’re lucky to have him.
Of course Shelley Berman and company have not said a word to the coach:
Perry, contacted Sunday, said he was surprised when the letter informing him of the investigation was delivered to him on Friday.
“I was in total shock,” he said. “They brought me the letter on Friday afternoon. They promised to do this in an expedient way and I have made myself available.”
Perry said he’s still waiting to hear from the administration, however. As of midday Sunday, he was still waiting.
“They have not asked me one thing,” Perry said. “I don’t know anything. I have no clue, that’s really all I can say.”
Perry denies the allegations about his coaching practices.
“It is unfortunate that anyone can make false allegations to the school and then the school feels like it has to react without hearing from the coach,” Perry said.
He said he is worried about the team.
“The players are always my number one concern,” he said. “My only concern. They deserve better than they are getting right now. We were getting better and better every game. Every kid was getting better. They were having pasta dinners and were in very good spirits, even though we were battling to have a good record.”
Martin did not respond to questions over email on Sunday. Superintendent Sheldon Berman and Principal Philip Conrad did not return phone calls Saturday and Sunday.
Gutless, incompetent cowards. I figured AD Bill Martin was just their pawn before, but clearly he’s just as much of a pussy as the administration he’s doing the bidding of. Keep in mind, he recently got the job after fleeing Sharon High School for the higher paying and higher profile job in Andover.
Well we found out from the Facebook machine why this is happening:
Oh look, some whiny little puke decides he doesn’t want to listen to adults, leads a revolt, the coach holds him accountable for it, so the kid makes up a blatant lie about the coach hurting his precious feelings and the coach is suspended.
Honestly, anyone who works in this district at this point is insane. The town of Andover is a joke. It’s not a real town. It’s run by idiots, and until the normal parents in Andover lead some sort of revolt it will continue to be.
Just like Coach Kuchar, and Coach McDonnell at Braintree, EJ Perry seems to have a track record of success. He actually led his girl’s basketball team at Andover to the state semifinal against Braintree. And in order to win at that level you need to be a no-nonsense kind of guy or gal. Loser kids will not thrive under this sort of leadership, but winners will. Of course the school system now caters to loser kids instead of winners, because losers complain the loudest.
Here’s my question – if this guy’s such a threat to children then why is he still allowed to teach at the elementary school? Because that makes TONS of sense.
And of course the kids seem to love this guy:
For Cedric Gillette, a senior at Andover High and a three-sport athlete, the news of Perry’s leave came as a shock to him as well. Perry has been coaching Gillette since he was eight years old in basketball and football, most recently on the Andover High football team.
“I think he is one of the best coaches and best men I have ever played for,” Gillette said. “I don’t think there’s a person who, in the history of coaching, has done more for students. He’s easily one of the most successful coaches in the area. He’s a legend in Andover.”
He’s a legend in town. A town he has roots in. A town that carpetbaggers like Shelley Berman and Bill Martin, who just move from job to job looking for better pay, have no connection to. They’re destroying a town that doesn’t belong to them.
Gillette said Perry is notorious for helping his athletes meet college-level coaches. Gillette said Perry once woke up at 4 a.m., and drove four hours to Colby College in Maine to introduce Gillette to a coach there.
“That’s just what he will do for a player,” Gillette said. “Everyone from the football team has a story like that. There’s really nothing he won’t do for a player.”
“He demands a lot out of us,” Gillette added. “He is a great coach. If you’re going to be a good football player, you have to be prepared. He always says he teaches us to be better men and grow as people. If you go to football practice and it’s easy, you’re not going to be prepared for real life. No doubt I am better prepared for my life because of him. He made me stronger and taught me a lot about leadership. He never crossed the line. He expects a lot out of his players, as he should.”
This is INSANE!!! Clearly they learned nothing from dragging Coach Kuchar through the mud by allowing a blatant lie from a disgruntled failed country music singer parent to maliciously and falsely report him to DCF. Other whiny bitch parents saw this and got the message loud and clear – if you don’t like your kid’s coach just make up an allegation and you’ll get a new coach. If they weren’t getting enough playing time before they will now, so you’ll essentially be rewarded for being a shithead.
Welcome to Andover. Cool town you got there.
P.S. If you know the name of the kid responsible for this feel free to tell us. We have zero problem publicly humiliating a kid like this and their parents to use them as an example of what will happen if you continue to behave like this.
