A community college football coach in Southeast Kansas has received backlash after he reportedly texted a German student, saying “I’m your new Hitler.”
The Independence Community College student from Germany shared a ‘fiery’ text exchange between himself and Head Football Coach Jason Brown on social media. In it, Brown referred to the student as a German *expletive* and made the Hitler comment.
He later told the student that he was off the team and that he was going to pull his scholarship
.ICC President Dan Barwick issued the following statement: “Independence Community College does not condone the language Coach Brown used in his message. I have spoken with Coach Brown about his message to the student, and he fully understands that his language was not appropriate. The college is investigating the matter and will have no further statement at this time.”
