Q: How do coaches specifically fit into that power model?
A: One of the things about coaches is that people often speak of them in god-like terms. These are people who have father-figure power — and not all in bad ways — but the power they have within the larger institution, school system or college, is huge. Anytime you get that much power, it is too often accompanied by both privilege and a veil of secrecy. With privilege comes the power to cover up wrongdoing.
