No reason at all. That man did nothing but good by getting that team to the playoffs after so long.

Did he also get fired from teaching? Or just coaching?

Better ask the principal at JCM. Sounds like he has a friend who needs a job and just created one for him. I am no fan of JCM, but from outward appearances, the coach got screwed.

The football coach has done a lot for the cougars in the last 2 years. When all is said and done, there will be a very good reason that edwards was let go. Remember, he was suspended at the end of the season for something. He was no saint that the players and parents have put upon the chair. In the next few weeks you will see the truth and then I wonder if you will have your little protest dancing group on campus. Sometimes things are unsaid and should go out the door peacefully. Watch the doors that are opened on this Mr. Edwards. It could cost you your future jobs down the road.

Understand that his original suspension may of had to do with a harrassment charge. The firing may be related to the original suspension.

I'm sure he could make up enough stuff to get by for a bit before getting fired himself.

His kids were both high school football stars if I remember right and I'm sure he had something to do with that, also he'd been working with Dan and seabass covering high school sports I'm sure he's picked up some new tricks from that.

He was only fired as the coach, not as a teacher. If it had anything to do with the suspension due to the allegation made against him, I'm pretty sure he would have been fired from both. And if there was any merit or truth to the allegation, he would not been allowed on the field or in the classroom after that. The fact that he continued coaching and teaching would lead us to believe that it was false. I have known Coach Edwards for about 15 years and he is a great guy. And listening to his players, he has been an inspiration to them and even preached to them the importance of education and pursuing a college degree. I think it's more of a personal vendetta of the principal... He couldn't fire him as a teacher, but he could as a coach because all he has to do is make the recommendation and the superintendent approved it, without it having to go to the board. And with a new superintendent taking position in a few weeks, I think it should have waited until she was in office to make the decision. Why make a decision as such in a rush, close to the end of the school year, especially when you know how the players feel about their coach. That was just asking for trouble. This decision was not well thought out. If you felt that you HAD to fire him, should have waited until school was out for summer break. Just my opinion.

Do you think he wont be fired at the end of this school year? writing is on the wall. If he doesnt have tenue in this school system (he Dont) he will not be rehired . remember it takes 5 years now. He has been here 2. he is gone

Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see. There have been other teachers that have been let go during the middle of the school year. And if he does, I'm quite sure he won't have a problem getting another job coaching/teaching with his experience on both the high school and collegiate levels.
