By all indications, a Florida high school football coach was just trying to do the right thing when he allowed a homeless player to live with him. Now that coach and his school are facing fines that could reach into the thousands of dollars -- and potential forfeiture of victories -- because of the player's housing arrangements.
According to OrlandoSentinel.com, St. Cloud (Fla.) High School coach Bill Buldini sat out his team's 20-17 loss to Edgewater last Friday after the school self-reported a violation of Florida High School Athletic Association code aimed at curbing the recruiting of players. The rule states that no school employee or representative of the school's athletic department can provide or promise free or reduced-cost housing for a potential athlete in their program.

The FHSAA rule may be well meaning, but school officials insist that Buldini did not violate any district rules. The Osceola County School District reinstated Buldini to both his coaching duties and day job as a social studies teacher at the school on Monday. That's where things stand now, and they may stay that way for awhile. According to WFTV.com, the FHSAA has offered no indication of how long its investigation into Buldini will last.

kind of a fucked up situation. I understand the rule and recruiting but I'm always amazed when common sense can't trump technicalities in rules.

Pretty terrible. Actively discouraging a guy from being a good citizen and trying to help a kid out; which you'd think is what you want from a HS football coach.

Public outcry will lead to the right thing being done. School board members really hate when ESPN, the local paper and CNN bugs the shit out of them with phone calls and accusations.

If a parent does it that make a movie out of it, but a coach does it and he is suspended and threatened with a fine.
