Duxbury’s Maimaron fired for anti-Semitic language during game

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Duxbury High School (Mass.) head football coach Dave Maimaron has been fired by the school. He allegedly used anti-Semitic words during a recent game.

The incident in question came during their March 12th game against Plymouth North. He reportedly called plays that were named “Auschwitz,” “rabbi” and “dreidel.”

“The outrage is real, warranted, and we hear it,” Duxbury High School’s administration said in an emailed statement. “The fact that members of our school community used such offensive language, including anti-Semitic language, is horrifying and disappointing.”

A consultant firm was hired by the school on Wednesday. They will do an investigation into the incident.

Edward Mitnick, an attorney and investigator, will lead the investigation.

“We know from many conversations, emails, and online posts that many people want action now, and we appreciate that sentiment, ” the statement said. “However, we are still in the middle of an active investigation and it is important that we get accurate information and facts in this case.”

The school has also announced the cancellation of this Friday’s game against Hingham. No other announcements have been made at this time regarding the rest of their schedule.

Maimaron — who also works at the school as a special needs teacher — has apologized for the words.

“On behalf of the staff and players of the Duxbury High School football team, I want to extend my apology for the insensitive, crass and inappropriate language used in the game on March 12th,” he said.
