HS Football Coach Placed on Administrative Leave for Praying on the Field

HS Football Coach Placed on Administrative Leave for Praying on the Field | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it

The Washington State high school football coach who had been warned to end his on-field, post-game prayers has been placed on paid administrative leave for continuing the practice.

Joe Kennedy, head coach of junior varsity football and assistant coach of varsity football at Bremerton High School, has openly prayed on the football field after games since 2008, but school district administrators only recently became aware of it.

Kennedy received a letter in September from Bremerton School District Superintendent Aaron Leavell demanding he keep religion off the field, but he continued to conduct the prayers, with some players joining in.

The district followed through on its threat Wednesday, saying in a news release that Kennedy has been put on paid administrative leave and will be paid throughout the remainder of his contract term, "unless his employment status is changed in the future."
