Florence Basketball Coach Steps Down After Hazing Incident

A New Jersey high school baseball coach is stepping down following a hazing incident in which a player was bitten by teammates.

The Florence Board of Education approved Jopeph Frappolli Jr.’s leave from the coaching job at its meeting Monday. He will remain a teacher at a district elementary school.

The Times of Trenton reports that four players were suspended after a March hazing ritual in which a student was held down and bitten by others.

School district lawyer Carmen Saginario says that a similar incident earlier in March was uncovered during the investigation. He says it was part of a “hazing tradition.”

School officials have not given details on the rituals.

A new anti-hazing policy has now been implemented in the school district south of Trenton.
