Chicago Coaches Removed Over Fight Allegations
CHICAGO (AP) -- Two Chicago football coaches have been removed from their positions amid allegations they were involved in a teen's beating.

Chicago Public Schools says it has removed the Fenger Academy High School coaches pending an investigation.

Police say the 16-year-old victim was attacked at his home on the far South Side Saturday afternoon.

The victim's mother says her son was beaten by a group of boys who had been driven to their home by the coaches. She says the attack knocked the boy's prosthetic eye out of its socket and knocked out a tooth.

Fenger gained international attention after the beating of honor roll student Derrion Albert was captured by a cellphone camera and played around the world. Five suspects were charged in that attack, and all are serving prison time.
