Southridge HS head football coach responds to being let go
KENNEWICK, Wash. — Southridge High School head football coach and school teacher, Keith Munson shared his side of the story about his teaching contract issue Thursday.
The Kennewick School District (KSD) decided not to renew his teaching contract for the 2018 school year.
Munson says in his 13 years of teaching and coaching high school students he has never been treated this way.
He thinks the Southridge evaluation process is different from the past school jobs he has obtained.
According to Munson, he was never told where he needed to improve before the decision to let him go was made.
On Thursday he wanted to take time to recognize his players and those who stood by him.
“I wanted to thank them for all the effort they put in and what we have done this year is very rare, and I wanted to thank the parents as well for their tremendous support, ” Southridge teacher and head football coach Keith Munson said.
Munson added that he feels his greatest impact is in coaching and teaching. Therefore he will now look for another job where he can do both.
The Kennewick School District told our news team it cannot discuss personnel matters publicly.
As of now Munson’s last day at Southridge High School is June 16.
