    Girls TX HS Basketball team wins 100-0; Coach Fired.

    Coach fired, says he's not sorry for 100-point win | Front page | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

    Covenant coach fired
    Grimes dismissed following team's 100-point win

    DALLAS - The coach of a Texas high school basketball team that beat another team 100-0 was fired Sunday, the same day he sent an e-mail to a newspaper saying he will not apologize ``for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honor and integrity.''

    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 coach Micah Grimes' e-mail disagreeing with administrators who called the blowout ``shameful.''


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    did the other coach lose his job after being beat 100-0?

    It IS his fault he didn't have his point guard lay off instead of stealing it and laying it up up 50-0. Absolutely inexcusable.

    if im not mistaken but the other school was for "challenged" individuals or something of that sort (i think i read) and the team has lost like 50 straight games ... the losing school has been dropped by their league and is not scrambling to find games to finish their year .... i believe that their next game they only scored like 8 pts but the other team laid off after 40 ....

    Usually in this situation, the losing coach would be fired

    read my post or the actual story but the coach isn't really expected to "win" ... i think its more that he teaches the girls the fundamentals of the game and lets them feel like their apart of something ...
