Teuscher and Cullen are part of a first-year staff at Copper Hills, a football program that traditionally has struggled on the field. One parent said the disciplinary actions have been a blow.
"He's never been so excited about his coach," Kim Newman, whose son is a sophomore on the Grizzlies team, said about her child's relationship with Cullen. "He's never been so inspired and empowered by any of his coaches. He just has a completely different view. ... That's why everyone is upset about this, because there's so much hoped based on their coaching abilities."
Newman said school officials have told her that players were not in danger.
"I'm not saying that it's appropriate for someone to swear at anyone else, but it's a football game," she said. "I know it's not constructive, but they're not in therapy; they're at a football game."
Teuscher will be allowed to continue to work with his players, though he will not be permitted on the sideline during the team's next two games, Riesgraf said. Cullen, who also worked as a hall monitor in the school, resigned from that position after being relieved of his coaching duties.
A meeting for players and parents has been scheduled at the high school for 7 p.m. Wednesday.
