Does anyone know what Coach Krantz at Sullivan Central did to be investigated by KPD?

There has been rumors for years about Brandon Krantz. Supposedly he was transfered to Central from North because of a problem that involved a student. This isn't the first time from what I have heard. But innocent until proven guilty. I don't think it looks very good for him.

That's what I figured, I had heard rumors of him doing things like that. Do you know who it was?

Does it matter? The person is a minor so no names will be released and rightfully so.

No it doesn't matter, I was just curious which slut it was this time. That school has the darkest past of any high school I've ever heard of. Everyday when I drive by there I remind myself how lucky I am to be out of that shit hole!

From what I hear it was with more then one. Slut is a pretty strong word to use. Who knows what type of pressures he may have used on his different victims. Any adult that preys on a minor is conniving. Who knows what type of lines he is dropping on his victims. I'm surprised this has gone along for as long as it has. I haven't had any relationship with Central High School so I really do not know what type of dung hole it may be.

Oh I can assure you it's a shit hole. Maybe the girl wasn't a slut. I know that krantz was always very flirty with the female students and especially the female atheletes. I guess he will get what was coming for him.

I currently go to central and I can assure you its NOT a shit hole. I love waking up everyday and going to school there, say what you will I have had coach krantz as a teacher and he is one of my favorite teachers there. Just because he iledgetly had an affair which noone can prove right now, hes still a stand up guy and dosent deserve to be talked shit about on topics. Smh.

Maybe if the coaches at central focused on building winning sport programs and playing grab ass with the children they wouldnt be the laughing stock of the sports world

I'm sorry but coach krantz was a joke of a teacher in every class I had with him and others agreed. The students liked him because he didn't make them do shit and allowed tobacco use in the classroom. I don't know what you consider to be a great teacher but he is definently not one. Most high school students think that a good teacher is one that doesn't make them work hard. Go to college and your opinion will change. I had a weights class with him and he would spend the first 45 minutes of class socializing with 17 year old girls that came into the weight room. This guy is getting what he deserves, too bad it didn't happen sooner.

I'm guessing you feel the same way about the English and grammar instructors. Nice display of Central's academia standards. I can't wait to see what this "stand-up" guy has done. The underlying problem with education around here is the fact that the school systems hire these clowns that are alumni. Not all alumni staff members are dismal, but I know of a great deal that are well less than par. In many cases these "instructors" have many other interests on their plates.

Central HS may me in the news for negative things more than any other school in the Tri-Cities but it is not a crappy school. It graduates many high achieving students who go on to do great things and be successful. I loved my 4 years at SCHS and wouldn't trade them for DB, TN High, or Science Hill any day.

Coach Krantz guilty or not was a very caring teacher who knew what he was doing. I worked with him all four years and never had a problem.
Students may have liked him for being slack on things but its not like he was the only wan lax on rules.

I wish Krantz the best on his future endeavors!

So just because other people were slack makes it ok for him to be? I guess they are the lucky ones not getting busted for sex with minors. Krantz had a past at North high school with similar things. Why was this not a red flag for the county? Would you hire a teacher who got transferred from another school for getting involved with minors? I sure wouldn't! Krantz is a great example of the poor educators that we have in Sullivan County.

Well said. This has happened before within the county and I am pretty sure it was an alumnus of one of the county high schools. One of the coveted 80s or early 90s athletes I'm sure. I would love to sit in on a few interviews or see the hiring criteria. There are plenty of hard-working, genuine educators out there who are aspiring teachers, but cannot get an opportunity because "so and so" went to school there or "so and so's" mommy or daddy worked there. I have personally witnessed teachers thoroughly involved in the high school gossip and drama. Two of them were alumni members of the school.

Krantz has family ties to people in high places within the Sullivan County education system and probably believed he could get away with whatever he wanted. He is a nephew of Jim Kiss, the Bloomingdale rep of the BOE who was just defeated in the past week's elections, and his mother was a teaching aid at one Bloomingdale elementary school. From all I have heard, Krantz will be going away for a while, no matter how good his ties are. The KPD supposedly have recorded messages and texts he has sent to at least one girl. The detectives are trying to determine if this is another Penn State style coverup by the Sullivan County school board, because if the rumors of his actions at North and then Central are true, and people did not report it, there are not only civil suits that can come out of it but also criminal investigations into any higher ups that knew about it and swept it under the rug.

You know people have wagging tongues... and half on here is false but thats fine if this is where people get their kicks..I have never heard anyone speak unkind of Mr. Krantz and yes he may have been a ladies man but he was a good teacher and coach...and he earned his career as a coach and teacher. Nothing was swept under the rug in the system and yes he may be guilty of chasing girls.( I don't know) but he just got caught in his sin. WHAT IS YOURS? Yes Wagging tongues. what a pass time. Cast the first stone!!!!

If the accusations are true. Here is what Tn Law is:

Statutory rape by authority figure :
Class C felony

Class C Felonies are subject to fines as designated by a jury unless statutes are provided. This fine can be as much as ten thousand dollars but no more. A prison sentence can be given with no less than three years and no more than fifteen years in a state prison.

If he is considered an authority figure to the minor involved, no probation of judicial diversion is allowed.

As a parent of students at CHS, I would not send my children anywhere else. Central has its problems but so does every high school in this area (city schools included). I know Krantz but I can honestly say I never saw him do anything inappropriate. That does not mean that he didnt do it. As far as athletics at Central, when the community, parents and students decide that they want to compete at top level, the parents will let the coaches decide whats best for the team instead of kissing butt to get their kid a starting postion. I am a firm believer in if a freshman can outplay a senior then he or she should play. Last time I checked, you play to win.

Wasn't a fan of Krantz but I am glad that SCHS Athletics (Football mainly) doesn't seem to be missing him. 2-1 record thus far 2 more wins than last year and in the three games they have put up more than half the points they scored all last year.

Maybe the man was a distraction to the school all together. SCHS has had a rough couple years but we can roll the whole school and all the great kids attending into one ball. Truth of the matter is there are alot of good kids, parents and teachers at the school and he has proven he wasn't up to the kob.

If you have done nothing wrong and you have conducted yourself professionally you don't piss away a 12 year long job over a couple tails being told. Now if you think things will come out that were at some point a moral conflict or just flat out wrong then you do cut and run to keep from being suspended or fired. Something is wrong with the picture with Krantz and that is for sure.
