Richey out as FSHS tennis coach

October 23, 2009


The Journal-World learned recently that John Richey is no longer coaching boys and girls tennis at Free State High.

Free State athletic director Mike Hill said he could not comment on the situation because of a district policy that prohibits school officials from discussing personnel matters. Hill did confirm that Richey is no longer coaching at FSHS.

Richey coached the FSHS girls and boys for two seasons. He joined the boys program first in January of 2008 and then decided to become a part of the girls program that summer.

He currently works as a tennis instructor at First Serve in Lawrence.

Did something happen at the Girls State Tennis meet?

No, nothing happened at state. In fact, John Richey got fired two days before state. So all the girls that were going to state were punished when the entire thing could have waited two more days.

Sorry to hear about that mack, I hope they are able to find a quality replacement, but that may be difficult depending on the circumstances surrounding the dismissal (and starting it all off with canning the coach two days before the biggest meet of the year doesn't help),

Hey JW, why so long to announce this if it happened when mack said?
