I am not sure if this is where I should post this but since it has to do with lying to young men in a Catholic School, I think this is the right place.
I have been recently fired from my head coaching job on the JV basketball team for no specific reason. They gave me 4 reasons but still a bit confused about the firing because I can say that yes 1 issue was my fault but I did write a letter of apology and served a 2 game suspension.
That particular issue happened because I confronted the coach and the parents of another Catholic School, about there players calling my players gay, fags and bitches. 1 player actually called out 1 of our students attending the game to a fight. First let me explain that my team lost by 1 point in that game. The other incidents were 2 games that we won by 50 points. Both games I did have my bench in the games in the whole 2nd half of the game, but the other teams are not that good. The last incident was in a game that was close and my team pulled it out in the end, but the other coach called me classless and called me a ***** and said he would kick my ***. Now, later that day that said coach or AD called my school and made a complaint about me being classless and clapping when his players missed a shot. Mind you when his team was winning and we missed shots, the very same person who called me classless for clapping, was doing the very same thing.
It was that last incident that the school I coached for, said it was the last straw.
I accept the firing, but here is what I don’t accept and the school administrators should be ashamed of themselves. The wrote a letter to all the parents saying that I, “resigned due to issues with my work schedule.” That would mean that I quit on the boys and that is not true. I don’t understand how they could actually lie to the parents and in the same breath ask them to trust them with their children.
I don’t know how to go to the school or board of directors about it, but if these people are willing to lie in the face of these children what else are they willing to do to these children?
BTW, I got fired 2 days after my team won the ILH D2 basketball championship. Didnt even get to enjoy the season and our accomplishments. Feel sad for the boys.
