Florida Judge: Luther "Luke" Campbell Should be Allowed to Coach Youth Football
Former 2 Live Crew is being banned from coaching
Luther Campbell was once thought to be a threat to young impressionable minds because of his raunchy 2 Live Crew music. Now, decades later he is still considered a threat to young people even though he means well.
The avid sports fan has been volunteering his time to Miami-area youth football teams for years and decided that he wanted to get into coaching football at local schools. But, people in the Florida's Department of Education don't want to see that happen.
The state denied the "Banned in the USA" rapper from coaching citing his arrests and track record. Keep in mind most of what is being held against him happened over 25 years ago--all but a couple of misdemeanor gun charges against him have been dropped.

Campbell has volunteered for neighborhood teams for years without incident and a Florida judge has recommended that he be allowed to work within the school system. But the school system may still choose to ignore the judge's endorsement. (Maybe they're worried about Luke bringing strippers in to be cheerleaders?)
This isn't the first time Miami football and Uncle Luke haven't mixed well. In the 80's and 90's, Luke was known to "support" players on the University of Miami football team, which led to him being banned from having contact with the team.
