In order for one to work with the vulnerable sector, one must obtain a vulnerable screening test. In both Canada and the United States, candidates must be in good standing health and not have a history of diseases such as Smallpox, Measles and Tuberculosis. In the United States, particularly, all teachers MUST submit their fingerprints for registry.
Somehow these rules do not apply for coaches as they keep defying the boundaries of their subordinates. Here are just 10 gruesome examples.

Sandusky was a former Penn State University Assistant Football coach. In November of 2011, he was charged with 40 counts of child sexual abuse within a 15 year period.

3. Graham James:
In December of 2011, former junior NHL coach Graham James was accused of sexual assault yet again, including by NHL player Theoren Fleury. He was jailed before for 3.5 years in the 1990s for sexually assaulting two players approximately 350 times in a 10 year period.
4. Bernie Fine:
He was a Syracuse Orange Associate Basketball Men’s Coach. In November of 2011, two men from Syracuse University came forward accusing Fine of sexual abuse. After these allegations, another male individual came forward as well. In response to the allegations, Fine was fired from his job.
