(WXYZ) - Officials with the Summit Academy Schools say head varsity football coach and athletic director Rob Beaudrie has been fired following events that included using a racial slur in front of students.
Today, school Director Alison Cancilliari told Action News, that during an investigation into Beaudrie’s use of the racial slur, “two additional situations involving violations of MHSAA were brought to the attention.”
“After further investigation it was determined that the combination of the three policy violations required immediate action. Mr. Beaudrie is no longer Athletic Director or Coach at Summit Academy North,” said Cancilliari.
Parents say the use of the racial slur by Beaudrie happened during warm-ups before a Friday night football game. They say the word was used about the opponents.

Like so many around the world, Nelson Mandela's story captured the heart and imagination of a Detroit area photographer. Years later, she would capture some of Mandela's most magical milestones.
When he was released from prison, Nelson Mandela went on a tour in the U.S. but he only visited 11 cities. Detroit was one of them. He spoke at Tiger Stadium on June 28, 1990.
Reaction is pouring in from around the world to the death of Nelson Mandela.
