Two Bishop Amat football players allege they were physically assaulted by Damien High School football coaches at a game Friday evening — and now head football coach Matt Bechtel has been suspended.

Aiden Ramos, a 19-year-old running back for Bishop Amat Memorial High School, alleges that the Damien High head football coach, along with another coach, ripped his helmet off his head and grabbed his shoulder pads, after he and the coaches exchanged heated words after a tense rivalry game Friday.

In a statement Saturday, La Verne Police Chief Colleen Flores said her department was investigating a battery at the Damien High versus Bishop Amos football game. In a separate statement released Saturday, the archdiocese said that it had launched an internal investigation, and that one of the Damien High School coaches involved in the incident had been placed on leave. The statement did not specify which of the coaches was suspended, but sources confirmed to The Times it was Bechtel.
