Is It Acceptable For A Coach To Shove/Punch An Opposing Player?

I woke up early as usual to feed the baby and did my routine. Turn on ESPN, see if there are any good motivational posts on Instagram and then scroll twitter. Well there was a tweet that caught my attention courtesy of @fromthe300level.

Oh Andrew Peters. What are you doing? Now whether you want to call this a shove, or a punch, or whatever, this is completely unacceptable.  I coached a youth basketball team a couple of years ago, 7th and 8th graders. Did I swear at the kids? Yes, which ultimately led to my retiring from coaching. I will be making a comeback soon. But did I ever touch one of my players inappropriately? Oh hell no.

Andrew Peters was an enforcer during his career, and even is on a show called The Instigators (@TheInstigators) on MSG and WGR, which I am sure many people could care less for. It will be interesting to see how the Jr. Sabres, WGR, and Time Warner handle this situation.
