Center Grove's Eric Moore to remain coach following investigation

Center Grove (Greenwood, Ind.) announced Friday after an investigation into alleged inappropriate behavior by football coach Eric Moore that he would remain as coach but that changes would be made to improve the culture of its athletic and extracurricular programs.
The school did not say what actions were taken involving Moore as a result of the investigation’s findings.
The school initiated the investigation in February, conducted by an independent investigator, following allegations related to inappropriate language, aggressive physical contact, intimidating and embarrassing students.
The investigation revealed a “larger, systemic issue within the culture of our extra-curricular activities,” according to a letter to parents and staff released Friday and signed by Center Grove superintendent Rich Arkanoff as well as the school board president, vice president, board secretary and two board members
