College of Southern Nevada first year head coach Chris Sheff is facing an in-house investigation regarding allegations that players were charged $125 for a mandatory conditioning program in addition to making players pay for post-practice meals and the coaching staff bringing drugs into the locker room.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal report:
Players were charged $125 per month to participate in workouts beginning in early September with personal trainer Corky Field of Live-In Fitness in Henderson. The workouts were mandatory, according to multiple unnamed sources.
Mandatory team activities that players are required to pay for would be considered a violation of National Junior College Athletic Association rules.
The article also continues on to detail the other violations of forcing players to pay for post-practice meals and the allegation that one of the staff members brought marijuana into the clubhouse. The most vocal critic of Sheff is former MLB player David Segui who has a son on the team. He stated to the paper:
“My son plays. This isn’t about playing time or a bitter parent nagging because their son isn’t hitting cleanup,” Segui said. “I’m concerned with some of the things my kid is being exposed to in this program. As a parent it’s my responsibility to find out if the stuff I’m hearing is true. It would be irresponsible as a parent if I didn’t.”
