Report: Deer Valley High football coach on leave following team's alleged confrontation

PITTSBURG, Calif. (KGO) -- The high school football coach at Deer Valley high school in Antioch is off the job after an on-field confrontation earlier this month.

Parents of Pittsburg high school band members say the Deer Valley football team refused to get out the way during the band's pre-game national anthem performance. Some of the band members were allegedly shoved and slightly injured.

Deer Valley head coach Robert Hubbard was put on administrative leave, according to the Contra Costa Times. Hubbard was also a special education teacher at the school. It's not clear if he's still being paid.

The Antioch Unified School District has not commented. Both school districts are still investigating the incident.
