Dallas ISD fires Kimball HS basketball coach

Posted: Updated:
Dallas ISD fired another high school basketball coach on Tuesday.

Royce “Snoop” Johnson coached the boy’s team at Kimball High School to three state titles.

His brother, Madison High School coach Rod Johnson and his father, DISD assistant athletic director Goree Johnson, were fired on Friday, along with 13 other DISD employees.

DISD would not state why Royce was fired, but FOX 4 was told it was because of retaliatory comments he made to the media on Twitter after his relatives were fired. Royce wrote, “You went at me which is cool, but when you go after my family. Lights out! Now I'm coming for you. I fear none of you.”

The other dismissals were related to an investigation of improper recruiting for DISD high school basketball programs.

Royce didn't return FOX 4’s calls for comment.

The school district released a statement, saying, “Dallas ISD has high expectations for staff. Staff members' behavior, both in school and out, sets an example for our students. Our students need positive role models and not examples that promote violence or bullying behavior. Staff members who violate these expectations will be held responsible for their actions."
