The coach of a Texas high school basketball team that beat another team 100-0 was fired Sunday, the same day he sent an e-mail to a newspaper saying he will not apologize "for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honour and integrity."Quote has been trimmed
Kyle Queal, the headmaster for Covenant School, said in The Dallas Morning News online edition that he could not answer if the firing was a direct result of coach Micah Grimes' e-mail disagreeing with administrators who called the blowout "shameful."
Queal did not immediately answer phone messages or e-mail from The Associated Press.
On its website last week, Covenant, a private Christian school, posted a statement regretting the outcome of its Jan. 13 shutout win over Dallas Academy. "It is shameful and an embarrassment that this happened. This clearly does not reflect a Christ-like and honourable approach to competition," said the statement, signed by Queal and board chair Todd Doshier.
Grimes, who has been criticized for letting the game get so far out of hand, made it clear in the e-mail Sunday to the newspaper that he does not agree with his school's assessment.
So they actually do a good job, they play the game as it was supposed to be played, and the other team got their *** served on a platter with a 100-0 final score...... and they fire the coach?
Are they completely mental?
Basketball wasn't invented by Jesus Christ..... Jeezus..... if you're not going to play it the way it's supposed to be played, then why create a team?
We're they supposed to simply hand the ball to the other team so they can have some pitty points? Isn't that just as bad??
The coach defended his players and they did what they were supposed to do. Good for him. Maybe some other un-holy schools will want him to be their coach.... then they can come and play against the team he used to coach and make it 200-0.
