Marienfeld fired as Pierson hoops coach

i can only speak to the character of coach marienfeld, and not to the incidents that led to his firing. he is and always has been a true 'good guy'. i've known fred a long time and know that he is passionate about sports and coaching. he also happens to be one of the nicest guys in sag harbor. when i learned that he would coach at pierson, i thought what a perfect fit! i really feel the administration made a huge mistake that will rattle the entire sports program at pierson. what kind of message are they sending to the other players? the other teams? mediocrity is power? they should think harder the next time they decide to tarnish a good man's reputation. they should also start thinking about having coaches and teachers document all encounters that result in disciplinary action, so the truth is on file."
