Coburn is the principal of Davis Middle School.
Ruby Arias was sent to Coburn's office after punching Stephanie Harrison in the face following an intense argument. Coburn called in Ruby's mother, Samantha Arias, and explained the situation, though she was unable to learn what the girls' fight was about. Expressing confusion over how a model student would suddenly act out, Coburn wondered if Ruby was dealing with personal problems and asked Samantha about her home life. Knowing that Samantha was a single mother, Coburn suggested a split between the parents might have contributed to Ruby's outburst, but Samantha pointedly stated that "there is no father". Apologizing for unintentionally prying, Coburn explained she wanted to make sure this was an isolated incident for Ruby.
