Fired coaches used school bus to go on beer run, say school officials
(KXII / CNN Newsource) Two high school basketball coaches are out of a job after they reportedly used a school bus to go on a beer run while student-athletes attended a basketball camp.
The incident happened at Connors State College, where athletes from Tishomingo High School in Oklahoma were participating in a three day camp.
Students apparently noticed the school bus was missing and were told to stay in their rooms when they questioned the coaches' activity. But a store clerk reported the coaches to camp officials, who then alerted school district leaders.
The coaches were immediately fired, according to Oklahoma media outlet, KXII.
"We were pretty upset because we paid money out of pocket to go that camp, because we had to stay for three nights and we had to end up leaving on the second day," said one student.
Tishomingo has had its share of negative news this year. At the start of the year, a cheer coach was accused of having a relationship with a 14-year-old boy.
