    High school fball coach fired because of photos sent to girlfriend

    So here's the deal: Jason Robinson, the 32-year-old head football coach at Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, Fla., emailed sexually explicit video and pics of himself to his 20-year-old girlfriend, who is a student at the University of Central Florida. Somehow, the girl's mother intercepted the pics, which were sent to her daughter's cell phone. Mom then emailed them to the administrators at Robinson's high school, raising holy hell. The high school's principal, Dr. Donna Richardson, immediately fired the coach. Boom, done. So ... that's it, but I must be missing something here, right? Because there are no teachers sleeping with 15-year-old students, or nude photos being sent from coaches to 14-year-olds, or cheerleader sexting, or anything that insures our school system is always in the news. Here's the principal's letter to the coach:
    "Effective today you have been reassigned to Bulls Bay for the remainder of this school year. You are not to come back onto our campus, and we will make arrangements to get any of your personal belongings to you. You are also being non-reappointed for the next school year. It is regretful it had to come to this, but I believe you understand the situation."
    "We hold our teachers to a higher standard. They are in front of our students. They're talking with our students. They're teaching our students how to become good characters," Johnson said. "So we do look at that, but we're really focused on any policy violations that might have occurred."
    Because Robinson is within the first three years of his contract, the school can legally fire him for any reason. Oh, and the 20-year-old girl in question has a 17-year-old sister who attends Mandarin High.

    If those are the pertinent facts, I don't see what he did wrong...

    so the coach and his gf are consenting adults? How did him sending pictures to a non student, affect the school where he worked in any way at all? It's not like they were public pics. Either there's more to the story, or the school's got a lawsuit on their hands.

    They better have a damn good reason, because any judge that sees the above is going to automatically award him compensation for wrongful termination, and I wouldn't be shocked to see a defamation suit with it.

    How mad would you be at the gf's mother? Talking about being nosy and trying to control things a bit too much!

    I'm not sure about that. Personally, if I looked at my daughter's phone and saw a picture of some guy's wang, I have serious doubts that I could keep that **** a secret from her. Any concerned parent would have to react. Not sure I would call the guy's place of employment, but I'd definitely have a talk with my daughter.

    Imagine the awkwardness with her mom if he continues to go out with her!

    why would you be looking at her phone when she's 20?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    who knows? Borrow it to make a call, maybe? I believe that is one of the functions of a cell phone. There are multiple legitimate reasons other than snooping. The story didn't specify how the mother got the pics. Now, if she was snooping, that's another story, entirely.

    If everyone got fired for sending a pic of their wang, no one would have a job.

    It sounds like the guy is bringing legal action against the parents rather than the school.

    Uh, maybe we should wait to see (1) where he actually took the video and/photos, and (2) if he used a school's computer. If any of this took place on school grounds or involved any school equipment, then yeah, he should be out of there.
