Jason Robinson, 32, has been removed as head football coach for the Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, Florida after allegedly sending inappropriate pictures to his 20-year-old girlfriend. The age of the girlfriend makes this story rather interesting since two adults sharing such pictures should not normally be a matter for discipline let alone removal.
It has been suggested Robinson may have sent the pictures to other people, but that has not been confirmed. Mandarin Principal Donna Richardson reportedly said it was the parents of Robinson’s girlfriend who notified the school. Once again, it remains unclear whether the woman’s privacy was violated and the conditions under which the pictures were shared. However, some reports state that the pictures were of Robinson himself and that school officials never met with him to get his side of the story.
We will have to wait for more information to come forward. The concern with stories of this kind is that there is an increasing level of discipline of teachers for conduct and associations in their private lives, here.
