What kind of a parent would turn his back on his kid and say "Oh well, you picked the school, you deal with it." And I do have a rooting interest in this in that I'm paying the tuition here. There's no scholarship involved. So why don't you now try and answer the question as asked. Is this specific situation a legitimate case for transfer. There isn't anything my kid can do to change the situation and by the way, about 90% of his teammates feel the same helplessness.
I must be a bad parent, I would have told son, you made this decision now you make the most of it.
If you are paying the tuition YOU should have helped him.
It's not usuaul for most of the team to dislike the coach at times, especially if they are having a losing season. I know on son's team when coach wasn't happy, they banned together and PLAYED like animals to win, sometimes for coach to get off their backs. That meant extra time in the cages, better conditioning, asking more questions.
A winning coach (no you don't have to win every game) is a happy coach, remember that. The team shares much responsibility as to what goes on. It's up to the team to make sure that the coach stays happy.
