High school coach resigns over sexist, anti-gay survey, will retain job as guidance counselor – LGBTQ Nation


Pat Lynch, who had been head football coach at Buffalo High School for 13 years and had led the team to two state football championships, resigned from that position earlier this week, but the school board has allowed him to retain his position as a guidance counselor at the high school under administrative supervision, reported the Casper Star-Tribune.

In the aftermath, Johnson County School District 1 superintendent Dr. Rod Kessler was supportive of Lynch and the efforts to repair his reputation.

“[Lynch] screwed up, he screwed up big time,” Kessler said.

“The coaching, we didn’t want that to be the issue anymore. We wanted him to have his priority back where it was as a counselor.

“None of us are happy that it happened. It’s a black eye to the district. And it’s a black eye to Pat.”

This is no chastisement for doing something wrong, it's just another way to coverup the ignorance and anti-gay hate that is so prevalent in this country.

Here is the "survey" that his players were asked to complete under the guise of gathering information to better a diversity program:
