Another Coach Fired in Wake of Dallas ISD Recruiting Scandal

The fallout from a Dallas ISD sports recruiting scandal spread this week as Kimball High School’s title-winning basketball coach, Royce “Snoop” Johnson, was fired.

Johnson sent a threatening message on Twitter on Friday after his father, DISD assistant athletic director Goree Johnson, and brother, Madison High coach Roderick Johnson, were among 15 employees fired in a district crackdown on improper sports recruiting. He wrote, I’m coming for you. I fear none of you. He apologized for the message the next day.

Royce Johnson told The Dallas Morning News that he didn’t know why he was fired. “It really doesn’t matter, he said. The district ain’t what it used to be. It’s not the same district that I went to school in. It’s not the same district that I started coaching in.”

Dallas ISD officials wouldn’t say why Johnson was let go, but spokesman André Riley said, “Staff members’ behavior, both in school and out, sets an example for our students.

Johnson’s termination is the latest development in a recruiting investigation that began after the March beating death of Troy Causey, a Wilmer-Hutchins High School basketball player. Causey was living with Madison player Johnathon Turner, who has been charged with murder.
