Praying Football Coach Reveals What The School Did To Him

High school football coach Joe Kennedy, known for winning a Supreme Court case against the school that fired him for praying at each game, has made the decision to resign from his coaching job.

Kennedy was let go from the school in 2015, but the district was forced to take him back this year after a Supreme Court case ended in his favor.

Steve Doocy of “Fox & Friends” asked Kennedy to make sense as to why he quit after just one game. (Trending: Megyn Kelly Reveals Medical Diagnosis After Getting Jab)

“It seemed like the right thing to do,” responded Kennedy. “We’ve had problems with a family member down in Florida” who the coach clarified is experiencing health issues.

It was 8 years ago when the coach was fired for his silent, personal prayer at game time.

The prayer ended up turning into a major legal, and even constitutional fight.

After winning the case, Kennedy was sent back to Bremerton High School as an assistant football coach in March of this year.

Kennedy said the school “didn’t enjoy having me there as much as I was expecting them to.”

He then added, in regard to the early decision, that it “seemed like the right thing to do, for everybody.”

“Fighting for eight years, you get tired,” said Kennedy. “It was a never-ending marathon.”

Kennedy ended things with one final kneel on the field.

“I finished strong, and I just think it’s best for everybody that I go out on a high note,” he concluded. (Trending: TV Host Blows Trump Case Wide Open)

Kennedy’s attorney Hiram Sasser had stronger thoughts about the situation.

“Well, coach is a Marine — so he’s too proud, he has too much honor to tell you everything the school district was doing,” stated Sasser on “Fox & Friends.”

“We’re currently investigating all the retaliation that was going on,” he said.

“They banned him from the team meal, they didn’t invite him to the coaches’ dinner with the opposing team’s coaches, they wouldn’t give him a locker, his key fob wouldn’t work, they wouldn’t let him get in to certain meetings,” Sasser pointed out.

“They were really trying to ostracize and try to keep him at a great distance” added Sasser.

“They were treating him like a pariah,” stressed Sasser. “They were not complying with the court order.”

“It was rough,” agreed Kennedy. “I knew it wasn’t going to be a picnic.”

Kennedy says he ultimately doesn’t regret having gone back.

“I’m happy, holding my head up high, and know that I fought the good fight, that I finished the race,” said Kennedy, making reference to 2 Timothy 4:7.
