The governing body for Texas high school sports last week questioned whether the coaches of two football players accused of intentionally ramming a referee should have done more to calm emotions in a tense game.

The University Interscholastic League's executive committee is investigating the incident involving San Antonio John Jay High School. The organization is investigating several allegations, including that the hit was prompted by something an assistant coach said and was preceded by racial slurs from the targeted umpire.

The players and an assistant coach have been suspended by the Northside Independent school district pending the investigation.
