The Post-Tribune reports the former football coach returned from a few days off March 1 to learn that one of his students had cursed at a substitute teacher. He then wrote a series of student assignments on a blackboard along with the message "You are idiots," "The guns are loaded" and "Care to try me?"

A student took a photo of the message with his cellphone and posted it on Facebook.

Kincaid has apologized to the district's superintendent for his actions.
