REINSTATE DUBLIN HIGH SCHOOL BOYS SOCCER COACH, JAMES FULWILER

Target: DHS – Parents and Students,

For those of you who may not have heard the shocking news, Coach James Fulwiler, the long time head coach of the boys Varsity Soccer Team, and respected mentor coach to all others on the coaching staff, was unceremoniously fired on Friday afternoon at approximately 3pm. This is the same man who willingly volunteered to take the helm of a program that was floundering and had no discernible direction. In 11 short years, he has taken the team to two NCS championships, two DFAL championships, and countless NCS runs, including last year which was the team’s first in the much more challenging EBAL league.

No explanation or advanced notice was provided other than the athletic director, Peter Scarpelli and the principal, Maureen Byrne wanted a “different direction”. Mind you this occurred less than a week from tryouts where Coach James had already spent countless hours prepping the season since the end of the prior. In the past few days, and without any effort whatsoever, over sixty support letters were drafted by parents, alumni and students and sent to the School Board representatives and to the AD and principal. Despite that overwhelming showing of support and emotion, Scarpelli and Maureen Byrne issued a letter stating that they are in search of a new coach without having discussed this rash decision with ANY of the remaining coaching staff who are solidly united with Coach James. This goes beyond all logical thought as the program will fall apart this year without a coaching staff. And the casualties? The kids.

Please take a moment to sign this petition in an effort to reinstate Coach James Fulwiler at Dublin High School as the Boys Soccer Coach.
