The Fullerton Union High School head baseball coach received a written notice of unprofessional conduct and unsatisfactory performance after he was accused of using highly offensive and vulgar language in front of his student athletes, according to the Orange County Register.
Marc Patino, also a social science teacher at the high school, is said to have used derogatory terms in reference to Jews and gay people on “multiple occasions,” and more specifically used an extremely offensive slur directed towards a 16-year-old during a team huddle in June.
The student said Patino referred to him using a gay slur and then told him he was going to “skull (expletive)” him.
Patino had also received a previous warning last spring about his foul language on the baseball field after he used an offensive term towards a parent who had interrupted practice.
Patino was given 45 days to correct his appropriate behavior and 90 days to correct his professional deficiencies.
