Was Menlo School planning to continue investigating this incident with the team captain until the playoffs were over and his suspension would not affect the season? I applaud the coach. We don't see many acts of integrity like that these days.

So, skeptical, your comment above implies that we should teach our children that a person is guilty until proven innocent? Since when does a coach rightfully become a judge and jury that hastily give sentence?

Critique- when the player admits in detail the wrong doing to the coach, and accepts punishment there is no jury. Its between the coach and player. not the administration. Get smart. I have a feeling you are a parent who should probably say "no" to your kid more.
