According to News9 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the team was up big when Coach A (he asked to remain anonymous) says he choked another coach who disrespected his son.

He reportedly asked the offensive coordinator to put the substitutes in so his son could run the ball. The other coach reportedly responded saying, “Your son is slow, he’s not ever gonna run the ball.”
The coach says he has a son who is autistic and the comments triggered a verbal explosion on the sideline. Apparently that’s when another coach walked by and insulted him and his son. That led to him putting the other coach in a a chokehold.
All three coaches were banned for the year.
