TORONTO -- Mayor Rob Ford had the high school football players he coached roll in "goose scat," called them "c---suckers" and he showed up "inebriated" at practice, according to new documents.

The documents -- released by the Toronto Catholic District School Board this week -- chronicle the events leading up to Ford's dismissal as coach of the Don Bosco Eagles football team in May 2013.

A briefing note in the documents, obtained by QMI Agency on Thursday, outline "critical incidents" involving Ford.

According to the document, Ford clashed with school officials, swore and made derogatory statements at them, challenged a member of the teaching staff to a fight, offered custodians cash to keep the school open after hours for football conditioning sessions, took the students on "unsanctioned" trips and reneged on a promise to pay $5,000 for 25 football helmets.

The document goes on to allege Ford -- who sought treatment for drug and alcohol addictions this summer -- showed up drunk at a practice just before the Eagles were in the Metro Bowl in 2012. That event came the same day a judge ruled Ford had violated the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act and should be kicked out of office -- a decision was later reversed on appeal.

"The mayor shows up late and visibly inebriated at the final practice the evening before the Metro Bowl Championship game after being absent from City Hall in the aftermath of the judge's conflict-of-interest decision against him," the TCDSB document stated.

"During the post-practice meeting with coaches and organizers, the mayor is incoherent and pushes to have the players sequestered with him the entire afternoon in a room at City Hall prior to their Metro Bowl Championship game at the Rogers Centre."

According to the board, Ford also made the players roll in goose poop at a post-game practice.

"At practice after game vs. (Father Henry Carr), he made the players roll in goose scat and he called them c---suckers," the document states. "He used profane language that was excessive."
