Menendez Coach Fired Two Games In After Reported Confrontation Involving Parent and Athletic Directo

Former Bishop Gorman High School football coach Kenny Sanchez was fired Friday after two games as coach at Menendez High.

A person familiar with the situation said Sanchez was approached by a parent who was angry about his child’s playing time after Thursday’s game, a 28-3 win over Gainesville Eastside that was Sanchez’s first with the Falcons, and a verbal confrontation ensued between Sanchez, the parent and Patrick Turner, Menendez’s athletic director.

The person stressed that nothing physical occurred.

A call seeking comment from Sanchez was not returned.

UPDATE: We were able to track down a couple people who were there, and saw the entire confrontation. They say playing time was never mentioned in the conversation. More details to come on The 904 Now's St. Johns County Show That's on in the Morning, on Monday.
