This past June, the Supreme Court delivered a massive victory for the high school football coach who was fired for praying with players on the field. As a consequence of the Supreme Court ruling, he was reinstated as a coach. Evidently, coach Joe Kennedy resigned one game into the his first season back.
Joe Kennedy has a new book coming out next month tiled Average Joe: The Coach Joe Kennedy Story
The school put out a statement on the resignation:
The District received Mr. Kennedy’s resignation on Wednesday, September 6 and it was approved by the board at their regularly scheduled meeting on September 7. The District does not comment on personnel matters, so we will not be issuing any further statements.
The stated reasons for the resignation include taking care of an ailing family member out of state. Yet, Kennedy appears to have a new calling for his life.
“I believe I can best continue to advocate for constitutional freedom and religious liberty by working from outside the school system so that is what I will do. I will continue to work to help people understand and embrace the historic ruling at the heart of our case. As a result of our case, we all have more freedom, not less. That should be celebrated and not disrespected,” said Kennedy.
“As I have demonstrated, we must make a stand for what we believe in. In my case, I made a stand to take a knee. I encourage all Americans to make their own stand for freedom and our right to express our faith as we see fit. I appreciate the people of Bremerton, the coaches, staff and especially the students and wish them all well. Bremerton will always be home,” he concluded.
We wish Coach Kennedy the best in his new endeavors which include a film that’s in preproduction.
