Thanks for all the replies. I have received some good information. While I do think I was a little harsh and made it seem as though my son is mostly at fault for the bad relationship, I do recognize that he needs to make some adjustments as to how he handles himself in situations that he may believe are not favorable to him. I am not certain that any talk my son has will make the coach see him differently but I am going to encourage him to do it. If this is not successful, do you think moving him would be best? He could live with his father and attend the school in his area. I am just not sure what happens if someone calls your new hs coach and he has not been around you since you are a transfer. Any ideas about how this might be perceived?
