Middle School Coach Assaulted After Title Game Loss

A West Rowan Middle School basketball coach was assaulted Friday after a championship game at Southeast Middle School, according to the sheriff’s office.

Rowan County Sheriff’s officers said a man approached Coach Samuel Moore when the game ended and berated Moore for what he saw as a bad coaching job. West Rowan had lost by two points to Erwin Middle School.

Moore reportedly responded, It’s okay. The boys played a good game.

The other man then started shoving the coach, according to the report, and several people quickly moved to stop it.

No one has been charged in connection with the incident. Officers are reviewing video to determine the man’s identity.
