A wrestling coach in Minnesota is on administrative leave for being an idiot.
Marisa Vette, the [White Bear Lake High School] district’s director of communications, confirmed to Fox News Radio that [Jacob] Volkmann is on paid leave. She refused to say if his comments about President Obama sparked the investigation.
“We have an employee who is on leave and the district is investigating in accordance with the law,” Vette said. She declined to elaborate on the investigation or any complaints that were made against Volkmann.
Volkmann’s comments came during a New Year’s Day interview after he had won a fight. A reporter asked who Volkmann would like to fight next and he replied, “Obama.”
“He’s not too bright,” Volkmann told MMA Fighting. “Someone’s got to knock some sense into that idiot.”
The comment prompted a visit by the U.S. Secret Service after they received several calls accusing the fighter of threatening the president.
I’m just sayin’…
