OVIEDO, Fla. — The former head coach of the Oviedo High School varsity football team is facing more discipline from the school district in the wake of its investigation into inappropriate touching between players in the locker room. It was a ritual known as a “code red.”
A spokesperson said Matt Dixon was given a letter, but it is not known what the discipline is. It could range from suspension without pay to termination.
A district spokesperson said the letter and punishment will be made public in 10 days.
Dixon was permanently benched as Oviedo’s head football coach before Seminole County Public Schools wrapped up its investigation into inappropriate touching among players.
Dixon remains a gym teacher at the school.
Both the district report and Dixon’s response to the report led to the superintendent issuing a letter to Dixon, disciplining him further as a teacher.
