New Mexico’s School Football Coach Fired After He Asked Players Not To Use N-Word

A middle school football coach has lost his job after confronting players who used derogatory language to address each other.

Thomas Davis, the former assistant football coach at Mesa Middle School in Roswell, N.M., said he was fired after he tried to stop teammates from calling each other the n-word during and after a football game.

“I did what I’ve been trained to do, corral the incident. If you’re not head in charge you take it to the people in charge and let them handle it and that’s exactly what I did,” Davis told KRQE.

Davis, who had been with the school for two years, said when he approached the head football coach about the offensive language, he was told it wasn’t his job to reprimand players.

The pair then began brawling, which is what reportedly led to Davis’ dismissal from Mesa.

“What I was taught being a coach for so long is that you gather the situation and you nip it in the bud before it gets any worse. Apparently it didn’t get done that way and that’s when it escalated into something totally different,” Davis told KRQE.

Police reports show that head football coach Gabriel Flores called 911 about a fight.
