Player Boycott Leads to Coach's Reassignment at Grambling
October 18, 2013

Grambling State University football players boycotted practice for the second straight day on Thursday, prompting campus administrators to reassign the team's interim football coach to other duties within the athletics department and put an assistant coach in charge, the Monroe News-Star reported. Grambling players have been unhappy at the early season firing of the team's head coach, Doug Williams, a former Washington Redskins quarterback, and complained about 1,000-mile bus trips required for away games in recent weeks, and their frustrations boiled over Wednesday when they walked out of a meeting with university administrators and boycotted practice, USA Today reported.
