The school administrator is under investigation after it was reported that he made comments about slavery to football players.

Wagner was lecturing 65 boys about how to behave properly after some players scuffed up Marysville High School's logo on its football field.

Students couldn't remember Wagner's exact wording when he talked to the boys in a football theory class, but he is accused of saying, "If you want a good slave master, you have to be good slaves."
