Mr. Merritt is being told he can no longer coach this coming school year. Mr. Merritt has been coaching at Salem High School for over 15 years with more than 200 wins in basketball as well as over 100 in softball. He has 4 South Jersey Championships under his belt as well as 2 NJ State Championship appearances. Mr. Merritt has done so much for not only the athletic program at Salem High School but also the school in general and yet he was not even given a reason as to why he would not be allowed to coach anymore.

Allow Mr. Steve Merritt to continue coaching at Salem high school.

      Why is this so important to you to get rid of him if he is doing a good job? My son and husband are both teachers and it's not just an 8 hr job. You are always doing something after school and on weekends. As long as he is able to do his job and no harm to anyone else, no matter what age let him stay.

      I will continue to support Coach Merritt, this loss will have a negative impact on the student athletes of SHS. Let him do what he loves!!!!! Don't try to fix what isn't broke. Everyone should be as committment as he is. He made a choice to still coach summer league basketball, his time, even after all this, way to go Coach Merritt. Loyality to the team and the game. Kudos!!!!

      I have seen Steve coach for the last 7-8 years from the Little League level thru High School and I believe he provides a great experience for the children he coaches and teaches. Steve not only teaches the fundamentals of the game he makes the game fun for the kids, he is also a great character builder.

      I say let Steve coach unit he says he is done.
