Bishop Sycamore coach Roy Johnson reportedly fired


Bishop Sycamore’s head football coach Roy Johnson reportedly has been fired.

USA Today’s Chris Bumbaca reported on Tuesday that the man claiming to be Bishop Sycamore’s founder says he has fired Johnson. He claims Johnson was fired after Bishop Sycamore lost 58-0 to IMG Academy on Sunday, which led the school to be exposed for being a fraud.

The school has a football team that went 0-6 last year and was 0-2 this year. Bishop Sycamore was listed in Ohio’s Department of Education last year as a “non-chartered, non-tax supported school,” but it is not listed this year. The school provided flimsy rosters to TV crews (seen here), and lied about the college interest its football players were receiving.

There are also numerous lawsuits that Johnson and school founder Andre Peterson are facing. Some of the lawsuits were the result of what they did when operating the school under a previous name. Most of the suits are for not paying back loans to banks and for allegedly not paying rent.
