Outrageous: Wrestling Coach Put on Leave for Reportedly Insulting Obama

Jacob Volkmann is an Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter. When asked in an interview who he would like to fight next, he named President Obama. After an Obama supporter complained, he received a visit from the Secret Service. Volkmann's problems didn't end there. Now, he has been placed on administrative leave from his job at a Minnesota high school where he is a wrestling coach.
Jacob Volkmann told Fox News Radio that he is under investigation by White Bear Lake High School, where he has worked as a part-time assistant wrestling coach for three years.

“They didn’t like how I was representing the school,” he said. “They said I was representing them bad because of what I said about the president and his policies.”

Here is the interview. The Obama comments are about the 3:00 mark.

"Someone has got to knock some sense into that idiot"
