Heard kenny turner was fired as the coach of the football team from central. If this is true they will be losing a great coach. Sad for the team and very sad for the players.

My daughter had him as a gym teacher and she loved him. She also had a very bad year, last year. And he talked with her and helped her. He let her know that she was cared for and would ask about her several times throughout the school year. She thought he was a GREAT teacher. I hope he will continue to teach gym at Central and maybe just not coach. God bless him and his family. There is a few teachers that need to be looked at and the head principal Gina Lakes could take a few pointers from Coach Turner!!!

no one should lose their job over a poor season. it takes time. think of all the successful seasons in the past. every year is not going to be great. i personally feel they have made a big big mistake. hang in there kenny. when man says no, god says yes.

Turner got what he deserved, he was a racist and there is no place for a racist in Public schools, they finally decided to do something about it and I couldn't be happier. I hope they replace him with a real Leader like Gary Ford.

The post above about Turner getting what he deserved is absolutely correct. When I heard of this it was a happy day. He treated my kids like dogs. And yes, the racist charge is dead-on. I'm just stunned something was finally done. Had to get gutless Fritz out of the ADs seat, I guess. But I don't know whether Ford played a role in it or not. I don't care who did, but thanks to whomever. He was a great guy when he was an assistant, but as soon as he got the HC position, he turned into a maniac.

I'm not sure how good of a coach he was, but he never treated any student badly in gym. He is actually my favorite teacher at central.
Was Never Racist in class.

Just because your kids sucked and you thought they were better, does not mean Coach Turner was a bad coach or that he is a racist. This is the worst move for the football program.

How do you get off saying that he's racist? That's ridiculous! I'm as white as they come, and LOVED that man as a Coach, teacher, and the great person he is. He is very intelligent and witty, and at times, must have things HIS way, but most times HIS way was much better than mine. The only run-ins I EVER recall (in the four years as a player under him)that he had with other people were players doing things they shouldn't be doing. White, black, asian, mexican, whatever! If they were in the wrong, he tried to turn them around. Usually people that called him racist were stoner-white kids that thought he was a black man abusing power by punishing them.

KT doesn't deserve this slanderous crap. He's a much better man than myself, and as for his heart, well, he was very happy when my wife and I showed up at his house on Halloween with my son, asking for candy!

He is one of the few teachers/coaches in my long line of them that genually caed for me and about my well-being. Most of them were there for the sport or the glory.

As for coaching ability, have you watched any of UK's games lately? Need I remind you that Paul Warford played under KT for four years at Central? As did Michael Williams (UK football)(also white...ironically), Dexter Chenault (KS), Ronnie Letcher (KS), Keshawn Simpson, and many more student athletes. Many of these "kids" to most people were street-thugs, but he helped them earn a future.

I can't believe anyone would ever talk about him that way.

If this Coach/teacher is as bad as you all are saying why did not take this to the principal I know what you are going to say she would h=not have done anything because they where winning. In this day if of cell phone I find it hard that no one has film of this teacher/coach doing bad thing. To all the kids and parents that played under him could have done somethign if he was doing something wrong. What it came down as long as he was winning they would not say anything cause who like to lose.

WAY TO GO!!! I must say I can see you are a person who really believes in this person and coach. You obviously know what you are talking about and I feel like your comment was certainly heart felt. I have seen alot of things through the years done at Central that were not fair. That school has and have had through the years enough nepotism and sad affairs to go along for a lifetime. It is too bad if this coach was treated unfairly and it seems he was . That is so Madison Central thinking. This coach is lucky to have someone like you to say and care about him like you do. There is another coaching job out there for him and probably far better than Central and they deserve to get him. Coach Turner will be okay. No ! he will be better off if he does leave there. I wish him all the luck in the world. Kudos Coach Turner!
whatever

I am as white as a girl can get and as country as they can get and Coach Turner never was racist to me!!! i had him as a coach my entire high school career how do you come off as him being racist? i would skip class and go to the gyma nd he would talk to me and make sure im doing good in my classes. he is not racist and he is a very good teacher, coach, and leader. obviously your kids didnt try in gym, and were very disrespectful or he would have treated your kids with up most respect and like they were his own kids like he did everyone in his classes and the school!!!

coach turner was a great teacher and a heck of a coach. he was one of the best mchs had and if u think hes racist then u r stupid i am white as white can be. i had an mixed class blacks,white, s.a., all of that and u know what he never treated anyone different. he helped you with what u needed help with if u ever had a problem he had an open door. if your student had a problem with turner then your kid didnt like to follow the rules plain and simple. all u had to do is were your gym cloths and try and bring a book to read at the being of class thats all.i had him twice and i had an a both times. an that with me having to do rotc before class

So your condoning the man misusing his power to settle personal vendettas against a race who he feels is inferior to his own simply because the school he coaches at is under the influence it's all right?That's not what a head coach is supposed to do. But regardless the man is a racist and it showed on and off the field. Plus as far as the school goes, when has Coach Turner EVER given a damn about anybody in the school? Other than, of course, his black players
