    School politics for sure because that WOMAN has a bug up her butt. I haven’t heard one nice thing about her since she came on board, not from any teacher or student. In fact I’ve heard nothing but negative comments from those individuals. Something is really wrong with this picture!

    From what I’ve heard, he was not let go, but that there were in fact “philosophical differences” between him and the school’s administration. It’s a shame, as he’s done a tremendous job an his record speaks for itself. Best of luck to him wherever he ends up coaching.
