Josh Muscadin, who coached North Yarmouth Academy to a Maine state championship in his first year as head coach in 2005, was forced to resign when it was discovered his claim that he played for the USA at the 1984 Summer Olympics soccer competition was untrue.

Muscadin, who was also the director of auxiliary programs at the school, was caught in his lie when the Portland Press Herald was preparing a story on Maine Olympians to run during the recent Beijing Games and could not prove Muscadin's claim made to the same paper in 2005.

Portland television station WCSH recently broadcast footage from a July 10 interview with Muscadin in which he discussed his 1984 Olympic experience, including meeting with stars on the U.S. basketball team.

"Now when you look at it, it's like, wow, it's a good feeling to know that you represent your country and you're out there to do your best," Muscadin told WCSH's Lee Goldberg.

After being confronted, Muscadi claimed he played on a practice team that played with the U.S. Olympic team, but '84 Olympian Jeff Hooker, now the Denver women's coach, said there was no such team.
