Threinen is facing three counts; Third Degree DWI, Third Degree DWI – Alcohol Concentration of .08 or More and Open Bottle.
The K-M school district released the following statement Tuesday.
We have placed Broc Threinen on administrative leave for the remainder of the season for his coaching duties and on administrative leave until October 10 for his Activities Directors position.
Our Defensive Coordinator, Joel Swanson, will be interim head football coach for this week as we continue to make decisions related to the football team. With Joel’s previous varsity Coaching experience, we are confident in his and the rest of the coaching staff’s ability to represent the KoMets well at all levels of our program.
Activities Directors responsibilities will be shared by Trent Langemo, our High School Principal and Josh Larsen, our Middle School Principal. I am extremely confident in their abilities to continue to add value to our many successful programs at KM during this time frame.
