...More problems for Hiromoto "Dave" Okubo.  Seems the Lions had him removed as a coach on Thursday due to inappropriate behavior as a coach.  According to the reports, it seems Okubo may have hit a number of players.  Okubo will not be allowed to attend practice sessions that begin on the 23rd as the team launches a full investigation into what has happened.
