Oklahoma HS Basketball Coaches Fired After Taking School Bus On Beer Run (VIDEO)
Tishomingo High School in Oklahoma is currently looking for two new basketball coaches after the previous two were fired when it was revealed they took a school bus to make a beer run recently.
A Tishomingo High School board member told KXII-TV the incident occurred while the team was attending a basketball camp at Connors State College in Warner, Okla. The store clerk apparently tipped off Connors State officials, who then notified the high school of the incident.
“We noticed that the school bus was gone but he had told us to stay in our dorms and so we proceeded to do that and we just didn’t find anything out until the next day,” basketball player Kyle Miller said.
“It sort of just disappointed us all,” Kyle Miller said.
“I think it’s very disrespectful to our community, to the future of our kids to think it’s okay to do something like that,” a resident said.
“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,” Miller said.
“Them being with students, having a school bus to drive around in to purchase it, is just wrong…it’s really wrong,” a resident said.
