You are the athletic director at a major state (public) university, and a Muslim studentathlete has.

You are the athletic director at a major state (public)
university, and a Muslim studentathlete has asked to meet with you to discuss a
dispute he has with his coach. The coach insists that student-athletes maintain
a rigorous diet, which includes eating certain meals each day. The Muslim
student wishes to follow his religious conscience and fast on certain days and
avoid eating some of the meals prescribed by the coach. He also eats a more
vegetarian diet than the high-protein fare established by the coach. Before the
meeting, you call the coach, and he says that although he respects the
student-athlete for his religious conviction, it is imperative that he eat with
the team for health purposes and to maintain team morale. He is fearful that
yielding to this student-athlete’s religious beliefs would simply open a Pandora’s
box, permitting student-athletes to contrive all kinds of reasons for getting
out of his strict dietary regimen. The coach also indicated that the diet was
devised in conjunction with his trainer and is believed to maximize performance
on the part of student-athletes. What do you say to the student-athlete and
coach?
