Brad Sidwell, Franklin High School’s Athletic Director, requested that I do not return next year as the head coach of the Franklin varsity basketball program. Mr. Sidwell just recently informed me at a meeting held on May 14 that he felt my conduct towards the end of our CMASS Finals game against St. John’s at WPI warranted my dismissal.
I feel Mr. Sidwell’s decision is unjustifiable and unwarranted. During my entire tenure as Franklin’s head coach, I have received nothing short of exemplary evaluations from the Athletic Department nor has my coaching style ever been addressed in a negative light at any time by the Athletic Department or the Franklin High School Administration.
I am deeply troubled, concerned and disappointed by Mr. Sidwell’s termination of my employment which I believe to be wrongful.
