Cross country: Fired Arcadia coach violated rules, school alleges

September 01, 2013|By Eric Sondheimer

Arcadia High School early this summer self-reported to the CIF Southern Section alleged rule violations that led to the dismissal of cross country Coach James O'Brien, according to a report by the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group.

In a letter to the interscholastic athletic organization, Brent Forsee, Arcadia's principal, said the alleged violations dated back to 2009 and included mandatory Sunday practices in which captains were directed to organize workouts, recruiting of middle school students, and placing more than 20 orange flags on a race route.

An attorney for O'Brien disputed each of the alleged violations, the news organization said.
