WASHINGTON -- American University wrestling coach Teague Moore has departed from American University, effective immediately.

The Department of Athletics will conduct a national search for a new head coach. In the meantime, former AU wrestler Jason Grimes '17, '20 will serve as the program's interim coach and take on the leadership role in the wrestling room.

Over the last nine seasons at American, the Eagles went 60-71 in dual meets with a 24-41 mark in EIWA matches. These teams featured five All-Americans, 32 NCAA qualifiers and 47 place-winners at the EIWA Championships.

It appears that the lesson to be learned is to zip ya yap on the job regarding things not relating to your job.

Ya that's the weird Freedom of Speech thing, unless your soft ass employer is too scared to honor it

Every workplace has codes of conduct for their employees. Choose to follow it or get released.

Failure to follow law and order will result in a loss of one's job. Just like the community college instructor here in Iowa who was dismissed from his job for declaring that he was a member of ANTIFA on his personal Facebook page.

I should have added that only big gubment can abridge or deny free speech to us. American is a private university, just like Twitter is a private company. Don't follow law and order and you're gone. Deuce found that out a couple of weeks ago with Twitter.

At least in the case of the Iowa instructor, I'd argue that his free speech was denied, as the state gubment is who released him for private speech.
