North Carolina High School Coach Apologizes For Confrontation

A Winston-Salem high school coach has apologized, after a 15-year-old student recorded the coach and another official in a profanity-laced confrontation over text messages that the coach sent to a 16-year-old female student, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

The paper reports, Mike Muse, a coach at East Forsyth High School, has apologized to the male student and his parents. He also said he has been disciplined, although officials wouldn't say what action was taken.

The recording, which took place January 19, was made after the student, Dillon Tschenko, confronted Muse over text messages that the coach sent to a female student. Muse says that the sent texts were about her grades.

Also in the recording, Kernersville Police Officer James Deeney can be heard warning the the teen, that a student who previously accused a teacher of sexual misconduct earlier in the school year couldn't return to school because other students would beat him up.

Tschrnko's parents released the recording because they said the school system appeared to be taking no action.

    WITN is responsible for the content that is placed on this website... blaming someone else went out of style in middle school

    This story has totally confused me, did I read it right the student has accused another teacher of the same thing? And why does a teacher have her number to begin with? Please re write this article with more information when you get it or should I say better information!

    That guy is a snooty little mamas boy that will do anything to get someone (or a teacher) he doesn't like in trouble. The teacher wasn't even really doing anything wrong and he should have been minding his own business.

      What is a male teacher doing with a female students cell number in the first place? It is not common for teachers to text students, theres more to this story I bet...

    I read this because it was a Winston Salem school where I grew up & I was curious if it was a school in the area where I went to school. But I agree that this is a very choppy badly writen story. I so wish I had taken journalism. I'd love to replace even just one of the writers with the papers we have floating around here. LOL!

    This story doesn't make any sense. It needs to be re-written or have dramatic recreation done!

    You're right, this article is missing key information. It's not clear.

      Get used to this kind of reporting here. A pile of partially reported garbage seems more important than a stack of well-researched reports.

        It is an AP report if you read the bottom.

          Agreed, I find it funny that all of these people trash WITNs journalism but can't even read that to know that its not them writing the story.
