HS Coaches Fired for Using Team Bus to Buy Beer

Two Oklahoma high school basketball coaches were reportedly fired after using a school bus to make a beer run.

While with the team at a basketball camp at Connors State University, the coaches from Tishomingo High School took the bus to a nearby convenience store where they purchased beer, according to television station KXII. A school board member confirmed the firings.

A store clerk reported the coaches to Connors State, which has a policy of not allowing alcohol on campus. Once Tishomingo officials were made of aware of the incident, the coaches were immediately fired.

“We were pretty upset because we paid money out of pocket to go to that camp,” Tishomingo basketball player Kyle Miller told KXII. “We had to stay for three nights and we had to end up leaving on the second day.”
