Well, perhaps OP can clarify on whether this is school related football or not, but you are entitled to your opionion and I mine. I am totally fine with double, triple, whatever punishments in a case like this. If my son behaved like that in school and received detention, and then missed practice because of it, I would be absolutely fine with the coach continuing the punishment.

The timing seems too coincidental that your son's misbehavior was right before the coaches punishment. If he was embarrassing others, the coach may have been giving him a taste of his own medicine. Is it fun for teens? No. But is it effective? Absolutely.
