Coach Accused Of Bullying Players

KSAL StaffJanuary 31, 2014

A Wichita high school assistant basketball coach has been suspended amid allegations by parents that he bullied their children.

Lance Deckinger, athletic director of Northwest High School, told The Wichita Eagle that assistant coach Carl Caldwell is indefinitely suspended while Northwest investigates concerns about him. Deckinger says those concerns are confidential because they involve a personnel issue.

Parents of Northwest boys basketball players say that Caldwell had intimidated and threatened their sons.

Northwest coach Chris Collins is not accused of bullying and says he has never seen Caldwell bully any players.

Caldwell, who also works on the grounds crew at Northwest, did not return messages Thursday. A phone listing under his name in Wichita also rang unanswered Friday.
