On Monday the Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation released a statement regarding Coach Stephen Moriarty who was suspended a head football coach until the school board could review the details of a September 29th incident.
During halftime of the Vikings’ game at Rochester it is alleged that Moriarty threw two crates that contained water bottles. One of the crates ricocheted off the wall and came in contact with a player. The player did not play the second half as a result, but has since been cleared to play during the next football game.
Moriarty has now been demoted to an assistant coach for the Tippecanoe Valley Vikings.
Jeff Shriver will assume all head coaching responsibilities at Tippecanoe Valley High School for the remainder of the 2017 football season.
Moriarty was hired on as head coach during a Jan. 16 school board meeting.
