Gutless New Dighton-Rehoboth Principal Suspends 41 Year State Championship Coach After 1 Parent Complains About Kid’s Playing Time And Coach Yelling

High school parents are out of control. Two years ago we published the insane emails that Braintree girl’s basketball parents had been sending their 3 time state champion girl’s basketball coach because parents were upset about playing time. Last year around this time we exposed Andover Superintendent Shelly Berman and a failed country music singer parent of a hockey player, after they used a personal grudge to make up a complete lie and had DCF investigate their highly successful coach.

Well, it’s happened again, and this time it’s at Dighton-Rehoboth Regional. This is boy’s basketball coach, and 41 year veteran baseball coach Bill Cuthbertson.

Despite the enormity of his success (DR won the State Championship in 2016) he has been suspended for the last month from coaching his team.

Bill Cuthbertson was placed on administrative leave with pay after a pair of alleged incidents in January resulted in him being banished to the sidelines by D-R Principal John Gould.

“I know that my basketball players, members of the D-R community and staff, and Doug Kelley — my athletic director, are very upset by all of this,” said Cuthbertson, who will meet with D-R’s Title IX administrator on Thursday to review the allegations.

For the past two weeks Cuthbertson has been in basketball limbo, unable to coordinate and conduct practices for the Falcons or coach any of D-R’s scheduled games. Upon the retention of legal counsel, Cuthbertson was granted a review of the alleged matter. He was informed Tuesday that the investigating officer would meet with him to review the complaints. When Gould placed him on leave, Cuthbertson said he was told that “it is no longer safe for the kids to be around you,” based on unsubstantiated claims of favoritism and verbal abuse.

“Favoritism and verbal abuse.”

Translation – some parent thinks Johnny is a lot better than he really he is and claims he should’ve been starting, so he went and whined to the gutless principal that the coach was too mean and yelled at kids during practices. Yea, this guy looks like a real monster.

Look at those kids!! They look horrified!! God knows how many mean words he said to them when they did something wrong!!

Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School District Superintendent Dr. Anthony Azur said in a prepared statement that “after discussion with Dr. Gould, our High School Principal, we have placed the Boys’ Varsity Basketball Coach on paid administrative leave while we review matters that have recently come to our attention regarding the basketball program.

“This action comes during the season and we realize the impact this may have on players and the coach. We have taken steps to ensure the program continues uninterrupted by designating Doug Kelley, Dean of Student Activities and Athletics, as interim coach while we conduct a review which is fair to all parties and respectful of the privacy and rights of all.

As usual, school administrators love to show us that they never consider what is best for kids. Because what kids need is structure and consistency. Getting rid of their coach halfway through the season for unknown reasons does the opposite of that. It also teaches kids that they are guilty until proven innocent, and all of the things they worked so hard for can be taken from them if one of their teammates has a shithead parent who faults everyone but his own kid for their lack of productivity.

His record speaks for itself:

Cuthbertson has served as the boys’ basketball coach at D-R for the past 17 seasons after coaching the girls’ varsity for 11 seasons. He is scheduled to begin his 40th season at the helm of the baseball team next month. Cuthbertson’s career has been marked by the MIAA Division 2016 Division 2 state baseball championship in addition to 23 conference championships, innumerable Coach of the Year awards from a variety of newspapers, including the Sun-Chronicle, and election to the Massachusetts Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame.

And parents and alumni speak incredibly favorably of him.

The only person with anything negative to say, amongst hundreds of comments in praise of the coach, was this idiot.

So what does a state championship winning coach have to do to get fired after 41 years of public service?

Principal John Gould told Cuthbertson that one of the allegations is that (Cuthbertson) “yelled at and berated the team after a handshake line at a game within the last two weeks.”

Oh no!! Not yelling at children!! Coaches are never allowed to do that. God forbid kids are taught (gasp) discipline!! But, but, but….FEELINGS!!

And of course there’s no due process or anything remotely resembling it….

“But when I asked him when this happened, and where the incident occurred, Gould told me, ‘I don’t know.’ When I asked him who had made these allegations against me, he would not tell me. I’ve been sitting here for a month with this situation hanging over my head,” Cuthbertson said. “I know my players are hurting because of the upheaval all of this has caused. My heart breaks for them.”

This is how schools work. A parent makes a baseless anonymous complaint, gets to stay hidden, and the coach loses his job while he’s “investigated” during the middle of a season. How does this benefit kids again? Oh right, it doesn’t. It just benefits the ego of the parent who thinks he’s the coach.

And of course this:

An initial complaint was filed Jan. 7 against Cuthbertson by a parent who felt that his son was not being given sufficient playing time.

Playing time. God I hate this.

The fact that they get to remain anonymous is complete and utter bullshit, considering the destruction their selfish actions cause. Of course that’s just school policy. Luckily we have a different policy – name and shame. We found out the names of all three Braintree parents, and the Andover father who caused all the problems. Let’s find out this one too. If you know who the parent is who is doing this, let us know by emailing, or message TBNews on Facebook, so we can make them Turtleboy famous. This kind of behavior needs to end.

As many of you know I taught and coached for 11 years in the public schools. Luckily it was track and field, where for the most part there are no starters, but it still came with plenty of out of control parent drama.

At Doherty High School one of the kid’s I coached had a mother who taught gym and wanted the job. So she complained that I miscounted her son’s laps in the 2 mile when he thought he ran a 45 second personal record, which he didn’t because he missed a lap. After that he told me he didn’t have to listen to me because his mother was gonna take my job anyway, and he ended up being right.

At Millbury High School I coached winter track, and you have to run outside during winter track. One parent of a 7th grader demanded that kids only run on routes that he approved of. I did my best to accommodate, since he was active in town politics, but with the snow sometimes certain routes were impossible. I was let go after winning the league title at the end of the season because it was easier to get rid of me than it was to stand up to him.

At Shepherd Hill it was constant parents whining that their kid was faster than another kid and should’ve been in the 4×400 relay instead of the 4×800. Others complained that my Worcester-style coaching discipline hurt their kid’s confidence. I had to deal with insane parent emails all the time (read the book if you haven’t already), so I totally get where these coaches are coming from.

At these schools it’s ultimately up to the principal to make all decisions. Athletic Directors work for them and do their bidding. And if you get a gutless one who likes to give into parents instead of standing up for their coaches, the kids suffer. That’s what’s happening at Dighton-Rehoboth. Principal John Gould is only in his 2nd year there, while coach Cuthbertson is in year 41. He obviously doesn’t value positive role models for children and would rather cave to the demands of one out of control helicopter parent.


Gould used to be the principal at Dartmouth High School, where he got himself into a bunch of controversy when he did the same thing with well liked school resource officer Paul Arruda. What did the Dartmouth cop do wrong? The school tried to keep it hush-hush, but according to people in the know the police officer was trying to keep the doors closed in an era of school shootings.

Some parents said the incident happened on Dec. 4. and involved Arruda refusing to prop doors open in the building. Principal John Gould disagreed with him about the doors and had him removed as SRO. Arruda did not come in Monday, they said. Other parents said they and their children were not aware of the incident until a resident posted a sentence about it in a closed Dartmouth Facebook group Tuesday at 7:07 a.m. The post had 190 comments by 7 p.m. Wednesday.

“The problem is that apparently an officer was forced from his post by a principal who isn’t complying with practices put in place to keep our children safe. There was no public address about this,” said one comment.

So basically the cop didn’t want to keep the doors open, which is the protocol, the principal did, the cop didn’t listen to him, and he was fired for trying to ensure the safety of over a thousand children. It’s clear at this point that John Gould actively works against the best interests of kids wherever he goes.

Also at Dartmouth this happened:

Mr. Moulding’s story is confirmed by the 400 kids who showed up to support him at a School Committee meeting after Gould got rid of him for no reason.

So what was his reason for leaving Dartmouth for DR anyway? He wanted to be around his kid:

John Gould, the new principal at D-R high school, used to work in Dartmouth and wanted to be closer to home so he could see his daughter’s games.

Kind of like Shelley Berman at Andover. This guy becomes principal at a school he really has no historical ties to, and one of the first things he does is gutlessly suspended and investigate one of the most well respected coaches in the state, and all because one whiny parent thought his kid wasn’t getting enough playing time.

Let’s find him.

    Uncle Turtleboy, Any updates on this? What a despicable bunch of “administrators.”

    BTW, Any updates on your referenced Sheldon “Cooper” Berman exposés from a year ago? Looks like he was well-loved in Eugene OR and Louisville KY… NOT. Despite his apparent propensity to employ lawyers to get unfavorable content removed from the web (and his own research to cow anyone who tries to show his character), there is still enough evidence of incompetence to wonder how he stays employed in Andover.

    wtf. I bet this was one hell of a coach. Coaches are like drill instructors; they know what you are capable of and will motivate you to be the best you can be (physically, psychologically, etc). This makes me rage. If a coach didn’t motivate the team and motivate them, I would file a complaint because he didn’t call my son a faggot.

    What’s the point of having sports anymore in school if boys can play on girls teams, parents can complain and get a 41 year vet coach fired (who is probably one hell of a role model, more so than these cuck parents), or that 1 person “might” be offended by anything for any reason so everything has to be banned because someone “might be offended at some point in time”.

    Let’s just get rid everything. Mandate the parents to spray tan their children so they don’t have to score well or live up to standards to get into college, because the leftists are so racist they think anyone but white people are too stupid to meet or exceed standards.

    And while we’re at it let’s just ban comedy and castrate all men.

    It’s the parents fault for pushing their leftist agenda upon the school, and it’s the school’s fault for being a bunch of cuck homo’s for going out of their way to make sure some fat kid gets more game time.

    This is just another reason to home school your children and enroll them in sports that aren’t run by a bunch of union cuck motherfuckers at public schools. Chances are this kid couldn’t play ball for too long, hence less game time. So the cuck parents have to throw a hissy fit.

    I will never send my future children to public school unless they have a mandatory class that teaches the children “life isn’t fair. walk it off and suck it up.” type classes.

    When the cuck parents get involved and bitch and make this not about the kid but about their status of their child they can brag about at their liberal cocktail parties, they don’t give a fuck about their kids. It’s all about them and their image. I bet you they drive Buick SUV’s.

      This reminds me of when I was about 10, I was in school baseball. I almost never batted because I always struck out. I bitched to my dad, a former Vietnam/Laos Army Captain. He told me to suck it up. And we both engaged in batting practice. He didn’t complain. He took it upon himself to play ball with me in the backyard for 20-30 minutes a day. After a month of batting practice, I was playing on a few innings a game, up from 0-1. My dad didn’t blame the coach, he taught me how to bat.

      Unfortunately parents like I have are rare now a days. They look for anyone to blame rather than spending time with their kids and teaching them to be better. They just blame whoever and bitch bitch bitch and vote for Lizzy and virtue signal.

      We need a draft and another massive world war to get this country back in line. Otherwise, China is going to be the world leader and we will be nothing but a country of soy boy faggot cucks.

    Thank God I played rugby at the national level and only coached college. We drank for free on the road and had to buy the kegs for home games. Swearing and excessive violence on the field was not only tolerated but encouraged. My old college doesn’t even have a team anymore because of the anti-alcohol stance they took.The pussies won. Don’t let this shitstain get away with bullying a committed and successful coach.

    I agree with the suspension. The kid not getting playing time is a once in a lifetime player. He’s being compared to Dwight Gooden when he pitches, ARod from the Right side, and Bryce from the left. All the best baseball talent comes from FL, CA, TX, AZ, and Dighton-Rehoboth. Also, coach refuses to use the extensive baseball analytics provided by the Math department and Chinese kids at the school. He’s more old school.

    First rule of high school sports should be the parents and the kids have to sign an “ I won’t be a pain in the ass” form.. In it you agree you cannot complain about playing time or hurt feelings. Coach is allowed to yell at and even speak harshly to your little snowflake. Enough of this bs. Sports equals life, some kids are really good, others not so much. Suck it up buttercup, world needs ditch diggers too. Buncha assholes (or just a single asshole).

      Agreed. I’ve seen that, thankfully, some youth sports leagues ARE requiring just such a disclaimer. It should be required for interscholastic teams as well. Why am I not surprised that this Gould ghoul has a title in front of his name? Not all PhD’ed educators are @$$holes, but I go to Red Alert(tm) when I see “Dr.” attached to a principal. Way to go TBS to expose this weasel, and hope you find the moping mama and pouting papa.

      I hate to f**k up the interim coach and his program, but I suggest the sane students boycott the team. Go to practice, stay in street clothes, sit on the bleachers and remain silent.

      Good luck, Coach C.!

        Finally someone hits the root of the problem. Gould may be the errand boy, but its Azar pulling the strings. An independent investigator cleared Coach C of any wrongdoing, yet Azar denied the reinstatement. This one will end up in court.
        Maybe then, will people find out that the District manager doesn’t pay bills, that the administration is in a constant fight with teachers and the union, and the school is on it’s way down the tubes. This all started with a “new” rule where coaches couldn’t coach more than one varsity sport….What in the hell is the DR school committee thinking…can they be any more blind.
