Alvin High School (Texas) football coach Tim Teykl has resigned. He was previously on administrative leave by the school.
In last Friday’s game on September 25th, he allegedly used derogatory language. ABC 13 is reporting that “it’s unsure if his resignation is tied to the investigation.”
“At Alvin ISD, we are committed to keeping our families and community informed of information that pertains to you and your child,” the school district said in a statement. “During an investigation, Alvin High School’s Head Football Coach, Tim Teykl, submitted his resignation from Alvin ISD. Coach Teykl served as Head Football Coach for Alvin High School since 2019.
“ Alvin ISD’s focus will remain on providing each student with an academic and athletic program they deserve and one that lives up to the ideas of excellence for each student. Coach Chad Strban will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.”
Two of his former players and their families have spoken out against Teykl. The former coach allegedly told his players that he did not want them to take a knee during the national anthem.
Leon Bell and Ronald Broussard are the two players, who are speaking out against Teykl. These two individuals allege that the coach used racial slurs to describe Hispanics, Asians, and Blacks.
No other players have said that Teykl used this language.
Bell and Broussard said that Teykl “didn’t have a peoproblem with the Black Lives Matter movement and proceeded to list certain minority groups that he doesn’t have a problem with.”
“During this season of change, we are confident that Alvin High School’s outstanding faculty and staff will remain caring and supportive as we move forward,” the school added in their statement. “We will continue to work with our families and the community to ensure we collectively support, embrace, and celebrate the diversity of our district.”
