What will happen to Jason Popp?

By the time you read this, the Richmond Heights boys basketball situation will hopefully be resolved.
I am not sure what the result will be. I'm also not sure who is telling the truth and who isn't.
Allegedly, Richmond Heights coach Jason Popp made inappropriate comments including racial slurs to his team.
If this is true, Popp should immediately be fired.
If it is not true, it's sad Richmond Heights parents got together and wrote a letter to the Superintendent accusing Popp of various infractions.
Either way, Popp will forever have this situation associated with his name.
No matter what way this turns out, people will remember that Popp's team was against him.
How can you continue to coach a team if that happens and secondly, why would you want to?
Why would you give 100 percent to kids who don't appreciate your help?
Again, I'm not sure if Popp is innocent or guilty. But what I'm sure of is this is an unfortunate situation all around.It hurts the coaches, the parents, the kids and the entire school.
Here's hoping the issues will be resolved so everyone can get back to playing the game of basketball instead of being swamped in a pool of negativity.
