MATTAWAN, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Mattawan parents are voicing their frustrations after the high school's long-time basketball coach was fired.
Administrators say they offered Coach Dan Hoff the opportunity to resign, but he chose not to, so the district fired him.
Sources tell Newschannel 3 Hoff's coaching style was the problem.
They claim he was too aggressive, throwing basketballs at players and saying degrading things.
The school did not comment on those allegations. They just said they wanted to take the team in a new direction.
Many parents and students are not happy with the decision.
A Facebook page supporting Hoff has also surfaced, with nearly 2,000 people signing their support for the fired coach.
Hoff is still on staff teaching classes.
