Stop driving the man to drink, OP, and stop your whining.

So our coach misses the bus and shows up at our meet two hours later with his girlfriend. Can't keep his eyes open and leaves after the mile. Both the AD and the coaches have warned us about going over the coaches head. So what is our next step?
I was at a wedding the night before.
My girlfriend is the AD
When you opened your mile in a 28second 200 and eventually ran 6:15 after I told you ten times not to start off fast I realized it was perfect time to cut my losses on the day, slip out of the meet and back into bed.
I think he would have mentioned that the coach's girlfriend was the AD in his original post. Also, he said that "the coaches have warned us about going over the coaches head." He didn't say the "coach's" head, he said "coaches" head, which would imply AD, which means he should go complain about his problems to the AD, which is your girlfriend...but don't complain to Seb Coe. Case closed. Looks like that 6:15 miler is about to steal yo girlfriend and take yo job. Hell, I'd be drinking too.
I think he suffered enough. Being hung over at a shitdick high school indoor meet in early December sounds torturous.
You are also probably part of the problem. Stop being such a loser
Reasonably accommodate his alcoholism.
You might accommodate this disability by making some "hair-of-the-dog" available to help him recover from hangovers and by allowing him to miss meets when he's on a bender. You cannot kick him to the curb by expecting him to show up sober at meets and coach the team when he is disabled by being in a drunken stupor.

I used to know a lot of coaches that would bring along a bottle of Scotch especially during a cold XC meet. I even knew one guy that used to do acid particularly at the indoors.
Problem is that LD running is just not that interesting to watch and you need something to make it more lively.
No problem with dropping a little acid at an indoor meet, but scotch at a cross country meet is totally out of line.
This. It is also acceptable when pitching in the Major Leagues.

I'm betting it was this meet.
What's the point?
So people can duck competition in the 400m. Duh.
Why do you think people do the 1k? To duck competition in the 800m.
Steve is that you?
A.D. is worried about a wrongful termination lawsuit. Don't you dare turn on your coach
