According to various sources, after a formal complaint by a parent and a brief investigation by Leon County Schools (LCS), Angie Strickland has been removed as the head coach of the Leon High School volleyball team.
Per LCS policy, the details related to the complaint will not be released for 10 days.
However, TR has been able to confirm that the complaint was related to Strickland using the death of a parent on two separate occasions to motivate the deceased parent’s daughter during practice.
The LCS investigation comes after TR reported in May that the Florida Region of USA Volleyball had an open investigation into the actions of Strickland related to her coaching activities while employed by the Red Hills Volleyball Club.
That investigation came after the Florida Region levied sanctions against Strickland in 2021 related to her coaching activities while employed by the Tallahassee Juniors Volleyball Club (TJVC). The investigation found Strickland had committed a “flagrant offense.”
