PARLIN, N.J. (PIX11) -- Football coaches at Sayreville War Memorial High School have been suspended from their teaching and coaching duties following the hazing scandal, NJ.com reported.
It is unclear exactly when the suspensions started, but the coaches were not present in school Friday. Five tenured teachers are suspended with pay, including head coach George Najjar, but some are substitute teachers as well.
"I think they should be suspended," said parent Renee Bulone. "They shouldn't have been left unsupervised, and none of this would have happened if someone was there."
School district employees who have not been indicted with criminal charges cannot be suspended without pay, according to state law. No adults have been charged in connection with hazing.
Seven Sayreville football players were charged last week for their alleged involvement in the hazing allegations. Three were charged with aggravated sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact, conspiracy to commit aggravated criminal sexual contact, criminal restraint and hazing for engaging in an act of sexual penetration upon one of the juvenile victims.
The school board is expected to hold a vote related to the suspensions on Tuesday, a source told NJ.com.
