Coach Pleads No Contest to Devising Play to Injure Heckler

Former Summit High School (Tenn.) girls basketball coach Angela Muir has entered a plea of no contest and negotiated plea agreement for her part in devising a play to hit a student spectator in the face with a basketball at a game.

Her case was settled Oct. 1 in Williamson County Circuit Court after an agreement was brought about to reduce her charges to only one count of contributing to a delinquency of a minor.

As a part of the agreement, Muir will have to undergo an anger assessment, write a letter of apology to Summit High and the team, and perform more than 20 hours of public service. In addition, she will be on supervised probation.

After 11 months, she will be allowed to expunge her record. Also a teacher in the Williamson County school system, she continues to be suspended without pay.

Charges against Chloe Mayo, Muir’s former assistant, were also reduced to one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Her case was retired, but she too, will have to perform community service and send a letter of apology.

Mayo was a non-faculty assistant.

Charges filed against the women stem from allegations of inappropriate sportsmanlike conduct displayed by a player during a basketball game in January. Muir and Mayo apparently devised a play that would allow a team member to throw a basketball into the face of a student spectator who had been heckling her. In the huddle prior to the play, Muir said, What is said in this huddle stays in this huddle.

The spectator was formerly a member of the team and did not have a good rapport with the coaches or the team player, according to court documents. The two students fought after the game and both were suspended from school, documents say.
