Shadows of (Bob) Knight: Indiana HS coach fired for tossing chair during basketball game
You absolutely cannot make this sort of stuff up.
According to Michael McCleary with the Indianapolis Star, a high school basketball coach in Indiana was fired and his team put on probation following a tirade in a game over the weekend. In that incident, the coach can be seen picking up multiple chairs and eventually threw one onto the court.
The coach in question is Nick Moore from Gary Lighthouse Prep. It came in a game against Bowman Academy.
Here is the video of the incident, courtesy of Chicago radio host David Kaplan:
So I just saw this video from a high school game last night in Indiana. You’ve got to be kidding me that there are still coaches doing this. Referees don’t deserve this type of disrespect. I wonder what the @IHSAA1 is doing? #Ridiculous pic.twitter.com/ohmlOlh0hi
