Chino Hills Conveniently Fires Head Coach Who LaVar Ball Tormented All Season, Ex-Coach Is ‘Relieved’
LaVar Ball’s enormous ego has ignited the internet far more times that any of us expected. For many of us, LaVar’s’Overbearing Dad’ routine has mostly elicited a shake of the head with a ‘Holy shit, I’m glad that guy’s not my dad’ response. The dude’s been over-the-moon obnoxious, but for the most part, harmless.
Well, that’s changed now, as he’s gotten his sons’ high school coach fired for single-handedly poisoning the locker room.
Chino Hills first year head coach Stephan Gilling went 30-3 and finished just shy of winning a state title, but was relieved of his duties publicly feuding with the father of his two star players, LaMelo and LiAngelo. Not once. Not twice. But every game.
LaVar told ESPN that he did not get Gilling fired, despite multiple reports that he was unhappy with how the coach handled the team. LaVar released the below statement.
“He’s a really good guy, but I’m just not sure he was experienced enough,” LaVar Ball said. “But I wasn’t the reason why he’s gone. It was protocol that the job is open every year.”
Various accounts from the season tell a wholly different story. Back in March, For The Win published a story that demonstrated just how overbearing and disrespectful LaVar was to the first-year coach, and it’s pretty unbelievable.
