Many schools in NEO have a policy where if you are an administrator of any kind (Central Office, Principal, etc.) then you cannot coach. Now, those districts are generally bigger, therefore have more employees. A lot of districts who have administrators coach are in desperate need because they don't have the numbers.
As an administrator, there is NO WAY I would ever coach a sport...way too much negative can come out of it. When I got my job, a coach in another district asked me to coach (not basketball) with him, and I couldn't say no fast enough. Take away from the time commitment (most admins are required to be in their building until 4pm), but the extra coverages are a bear, not to mention the politics that will surely come in to play.
This is just such a bad look for this Superintendent...and puts everyone (AD, principal, community members) in an impossible spot.
