Bishop Sycamore officials are stressed and somehow money can cure it.
Legendary sportscaster Dan Patrick exposed the school on Wednesday when he revealed that he reached out to coaches at the embattled Ohio school and was asked for compensation for having one person on as a guest.
“We did reach out to coaching staff at Bishop Sycamore, the fictitious high school, and they were not available. We were told by somebody that we had to pay, like what kind of compensation could we give to one of the coaches who would be joining us,” Patrick said.
“Dan Patrick Show” producer Todd Fritz said an official from the school wanted money because of all the hoopla and pressure they’ve been under following the school duping a marketing agency into playing a national TV game against a top high school football program.
“There was a message back to me basically saying ‘what type of compensation is involved because we’re going through all this duress and stress and everything.’ I guess maybe they would feel better if they were getting some kind of money for coming on the show,” Fritz said.
“We don’t pay guests. Fifty dollars? One hundred dollars? How much is enough? Like, how much is it for a high school coach?”
Bishop Sycamore has been going through absolute hell since Sunday, but it’s nobodies fault but their own.
Head coach Roy Johnson, who has since been fired, was exposed as having an active arrest warrant out and was caught up in a civil lawsuit.
Future games with other schools have since been canceled.
The former head coach just might be in more trouble if authorities can find evidence that he directed his players to beat down a homeless man.
