VENICE – “They said it in the paper, John’s DNA is all over this football program,” Monte Jacobs with Bill Buck Chevrolet said.
Since John Peacock was fired as Venice’s football coach, after liking a controversial tweet involving Braden River’s head coach, Curt Bradley.
A lot has changed in Venice, but a lot has stayed the same. For example, still no new football coach, well… because of rumblings of peacock returning.
“It’s been heartbreaking for us, all of us here, it’s good to know there’s hope and we’re looking forward to the outcome,” Jacobs added.
Peacock is expected to return to Venice athletics in some capacity, and probably the Indians head coach as early as Wednesday.
That’s good news for Venice’s biggest supporters.
“It’s been tough with the sponsorship, the sponsorship part has been really hard for us, because as a local business we want to support the community,” Jacobs said.
Bill Buck has long sponsored the Indians, but stopped after news of peacock’s firing.
“We felt like we owed coach the support,” Jacobs said.
Their support of Peacock and the Venice team equips the State Champions with the best.
“The entry way, the jumbotron, the new grand stands, the smoke coming out of the tunnel that’s all local money,” Jacobs said.
And they’re ready to get back involved, and agree Peacock should be able to get back involved as well.
“Absolutely, 100 percent,” Jacob said.
