Top 10 Coaching Scandals in College Sports History - Online Universities.com | Sports Ethics: TolesK | Scoop.it
Kenneth Toles's insight:

This list was made before the Penn State sex scandal, but it is still a good example of bad decisions. The coaches on this list are all deceitful and mislead not only the organizations they worked for but the fans of the team. If you want to see poor ethics, there you go.

Stern's Nightmare: Worst Scandals in NBA History

Stern's Nightmare: Worst Scandals in NBA History | Sports Ethics: TolesK | Scoop.it
To this day, Kobe Bryant 's detractors still use allegations of rape in arguments over his basketball ability or accomplishments. That's what scandals can do to professional athletes...
Kenneth Toles's insight:

Coaches and players both are guilty of plenty of scandals. One fact is that the scandals usually start with the coaches. Coaches are responsible for noticing problems and stopping them before they get out of hand but there are coaches that unfortunately ignore those problems and mislead upper management by pretending that everything is fine on the court. Also, sex scandals... very very wrong and are probably the worst offenses a coach or upper management can pull.

Sean Payton: Scandal doesn't stain New Orleans Saints

Sean Payton: Scandal doesn't stain New Orleans Saints | Sports Ethics: TolesK | Scoop.it
Sean Payton acknowledges the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal isn't about to be forgotten, but he argues the team's on-field accomplishments will be "what's most remembered."
Kenneth Toles's insight:

Sean Payton... New Orleans Saints head coach was suspended by the NFL for the "bounty" scandal. Allegedly he had his players attack the other teams' quarterbacks in a way that would take them out of the game. He and some of his players were suspended and the reputation of the team was basically destroyed because of it.

Since 1999, the premier source for coaching job information. A resource for coaches and athletic directors.
Kenneth Toles's insight:

It is a certainty that a team will be a reflection of the coach. The coach is the leader of the team and as the leader it is up to him/her to have great ethics. Trusting your players is very important to the success of a team.

With Belichick, the cover-up is most revealing - The Boston Globe | Sports Ethics: TolesK | Scoop.it
Kenneth Toles's insight:

Here is a great example of how a coach's decision can ruin a teams reputation as a whole. Belichick put in question the three super bowl wins his team attained because he was caught cheating. The most commonly used word for poor ethics in sports is "cheating."

Sunday Morning QB: Andy Reid gambles by giving Michael Vick keys to Philadelphia Eagles offense

Sunday Morning QB: Andy Reid gambles by giving Michael Vick keys to Philadelphia Eagles offense | Sports Ethics: TolesK | Scoop.it
Andy Reid has a soft spot - if not a blind spot - for Michael Vick and is a true believer in second chances because of what he experienced with his two sons who are now out of prison and trying to make something of their lives.
Kenneth Toles's insight:

It's simple... Trust your players and they will trust you. After Andy Reid made Michael Vick the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles that season Michael Vick had one of the best seasons of his entire career. Vick got into some trouble and needed the second chance there was Andy Reid, ready to trust Vick to do the right thing and he did.

Schlabach: Another ugly exit for Petrino

Schlabach: Another ugly exit for Petrino | Sports Ethics: TolesK | Scoop.it
Bobby Petrino has shown time and time again a willingness to lie to his superiors. His latest scandal left Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long with only one option.
Kenneth Toles's insight:

Honesty...Goes without saying that it is probably the most important part of ethics, both personal and professional. Lying to your superiors and to your peers makes your job worse than it has to be and often leads to you losing your job. It is important to be honest and fair in life and career to truly be successful and respected.
