Reno Saccoccia

Usually its athletes who are arrested or reprimanded for behaving badly, but what about when the coaches and others who help run athletic programs are caught breaking the rules and in trouble with the law? Check out BET.com’s list of coaches behaving badly. --Dominique Zonyéé


Steubenville, Ohio, high school football coach Reno Saccoccia was in hot water, when two of his players were found guilty of raping an intoxicated teenage girl. During the March 2013 trial testimony and a text message raised suspicion that Saccoccia was privy to the rape, however Saccoccia was never put on trial. He received a two-year contract extension in April 2013.
