DALLAS (CBS) ―
The coach of a Texas high school basketball team that beat another team 100-0 reportedly was fired Sunday, the same day he sent an e-mail to a newspaper stating he will not apologize "for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honor and integrity" and posted a detailed explanation on a hoops Web site.
The Covenant School girls basketball coach Coach Micah Grimes, along with girls from his team, released a statement on the website of the Flight Basketball Academy.
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 Grimes' e-mail disagreeing with administrators who called the blowout "shameful."

Anyone want to bet his boss voted for Obama?
The DALLAS MORNING NEWS ran an editorial that basically called for him to be fired.
IMO ... it is way past the time to bring back tar and feathers
Perhaps the school with the losing team should hire him?
Wait, he was fired for demolishing his opponent? If there was going to be a problem why didnt the refs stop the game? If anyone gets fired it should be the coach of the team that didnt score a single point!
We need an Executive Order establishing the acceptable margin of victory for each sport.
... for the losing coach maybe
I have read that they full court pressed until they it 100. If that is true he should have been fired.
The league had no mercy rule. So they just kept playing until time expired.
why? They shouldn’t play by the rules? They should just give score welfare now?
Dallas Academy has eight girls on its varsity team and about 20 girls in its high school. The team remains winless during the last four seasons. The academy boasts of its small class sizes and specializes in teaching students struggling with "learning differences," such as short attention spans or dyslexia.
No the largest pool of potential players.
Same mentality that gave rise to the de facto enforcement of Title IX and why girls/womens sports are derided for their silly ‘be nice’ aspect.
“Perhaps the school with the losing team should hire him?”
His problem is that he lacks a few things, such as class and sportsmanship. His behavior during and after the game is not excusable for a HS coach. He's teaching precisely the wrong lessons to his players.
how did a school like that get into the league?
Ah - now I’m starting to see the picture. Thanks for posting this.
