What started this whole thing?

Reports Thursday in The Enterprise regarding Davis High School volleyball coach Julie Crawford’s status have certainly shed more light on this unfortunate situation. Before those reports I could only scratch my head in bewilderment ask myself, “What are the Davis High School and district office administrators doing?” Now, things are becoming more clear.

However, there is still at least one very important piece missing. Has anyone ever answered the question of what happened last fall when coach Julie Crawford was “fired” from her job as girls volleyball coach? What started this whole thing? Her alleged retribution against Emma Peterson seems to have been in reaction to whatever happened last fall.

There is no acceptable excuse if, in fact, coach Crawford was taking revenge against one of her players by cutting her when she had earned her place on the team. However, what happened last fall? To what was coach Crawford reacting? What is the first chapter of this story?

    You are assuming that she earned her place on the team. Apparently, the team selection committee didn't see it that way. What we still don't know is WHO found this particular attorney / investigator to give an opinion piece masquerading an as investigation? WHO did he interview / not interview? And WHO paid for his pricey services? Various reports offer that Nancy Peterson wanted to be an assistant volleyball coach at Davis High; Nancy Peterson tried to influence who would be the assistant volleyball coaches at Davis High; and Nancy Peterson and her child were apparently not respectful towards Coach Crawford. Indeed, Coach Crawford's immediate supervisors were happy with her work, and her student-athletes are apparently very supportive and quite successful under her proven leadership and training.

    OBD- (since you identified yourself on another site,) as a district employee, you are well aware of the procedures regarding complaints. You continue to ask rhetorical questions that you know the answer too. Just stop!

    I did not write the OBD comment on this page and I am not sure who did. However I would like to clear something up. Nancy Peterson was in fact an assistant coach in 2010 but was unhappy with another coach in the program, she was not trying to get her job, she just wanted her gone.

    I am not a District employee, therefore no, I don't know what you are talking about. And if a public institution paid for an "investigation", shouldn't that expenditure be public record? If the answer is "no" as to our local gov't paying for it, then that is valuable information.
