I believe the school would be immune in this case. Contact a local inury attorney about immunity in your state. Did he suffer any injuries because of what the coach did or failed to do?
Despite the prior postings, Arizona has not adopted blanket school immunity statutes like some other states. There are some issues with suing public entities - see my legal guide "public entity tort claims in Arizona" for more information. Depending on the facts of the case, there might be some liability on the school, but you would need to discuss the specific facts of your case with an attorney. I handle such claims and would be happy to discuss them with you. My initial consultations are free of charge. Feel free to contact me via my Avvo profile, and we can discuss the case further.
