Coach Fired After He Mades Threats Against Dallas Reporter

Twitter takes down another one.

Three days after a high school basket ball coach posted a threat on Twitter aimed at WFAA reporter Brett Shipp, the coach was canned.

The Ft. Worth Star Telegram says that Dallas Kimball basketball coach Royce “Snoop” Johnson made the threat over the weekend after two of Johnson’s family members — DISD assistant athletic director Goree Johnson and Dallas Madison head basketball coach Roderick Johnson — were fired along with a dozen other DISD coaches and administrators in a recruiting scandal uncovered by Shipp and WFAA.

“You went at me which is cool, but when you go after my family [sic] lights out!” Snoop Johnson tweeted Friday evening, hours after news broke of the mass firings. “Now I’m coming for you. I fear none of you.”

As Kimball head coach, Snoop Johnson won state 4A basketball titles in 2011 and 2012 and clinched a third state title this past March.

In a series of stories called “Unfair Game” in 2012, WFAA showed how many of the players on Kimball’s back-to-back championship teams were improperly recruited from other schools. Snoop Johnson denied any wrongdoing.
