Bishop Sycamore football coach Roy Johnson let go

Bishop Sycamore coach Roy Johnson has been let go, school director Andre Peterson told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday.

The much-maligned Columbus, Ohio-based institution played two games in the three days over the weekend, the second of which resulted in a 58-0 loss to the powerhouse IMG Academy (Bradenton, Florida). Footage from both games confirmed players participating on both Friday and Sunday.

Bishop Sycamore drew ire from ESPN announcers for misleading them. The company that coordinated the game, Paragon, accused Bishop Sycamore of deliberate misdirection.

Peterson said the decision to move on from Johnson was made Sunday night, after the game against IMG. However, he did not publicize the news until having another conversation with Johnson earlier Tuesday.

Yet as the Bishop Sycamore controversy spiraled Monday, Johnson represented the school as its head coach in an interview on Twitter Spaces. Peterson was OK with this.
