Lehigh HS basketball coach Dawn McNew resigns

Published: Updated:

LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- Lehigh Senior High School basketball coach Dawn McNew has resigned from her position, the Lee County School District said on Thursday.

McNew, however, remains as a teacher at the high school, the school district said.

Her resignation follows a rough ending to the basketball team’s 2015-16 season after nine players were banned from the court over an online video showing them freestyling explicit and sexually suggestive lyrics.

McNew and her two paid assistant coaches, Ed Hearyman and Ryan Lewis, were temporarily suspended as well, but were later reinstated when the school district determined there was “no probable cause for disciplinary action beyond the games-suspension already served.”
