Coach suspended amid questions about players living with him  

Eastside High School's boy’s basketball coach, Juan Griles, is being investigated for allegedly falsifying multiple transcripts according to an NJ.com report.

This comes shortly after Griles was suspended without pay for housing three Nigerian players and three Puerto Rican players in February.

Some of those transcripts are believed to have handwritten notes on them saying, "Lives with Griles,” or “Griles has records."

A local news article goes on to say in two cases, transcripts for Nigerian student-athletes did not match their previous education at a private school in Northern Idaho.

FiOS1 News reached out to the assistant to the school's superintendent, Terry Corallo, who addressed the transcript allegations.

Corallo says human error is to blame on one transcript, and some in some cases, course credits do not transfer from state to state at an equal value.

She also addressed the quality of one of the transcripts, saying: "It is our understanding that the quality of the document submitted to the district was extremely poor, which resulted in a staff member handwriting the course names to ensure these were clear on the transcript."

The New Jersey Department of Education can investigate the situation and can form a corrective plan if wrongdoing is found in this case.
