VENICE – It’s been 41 days since John Peacock was fired as Venice’s football coach after ‘liking’ a tweet hinting a the skin color of Braden River Head Coach, Curt Bradley.
“Thankful for Eric Jackson and the administration, for the second chance. I look forward to improving our program, and proving our relationship with other programs as well,” Peacock said.
After Peacock was fired Venice lost one of it’s biggest sponsors, Bill Buck Chevrolet. Now they’re back.
“The decision to pull out as a sponsor, like I said was a very very difficult; it was not short sided or short thought,” Monte Jacobs, Bill Buck Chevrolet Sales Manager, said. “John Peacock was born and bred to be the head football coach at Venice High School, it was supposed to happen.”
Principal Jackson said Peacock is completing sensitivity training, and will sit out the first three games of the regular season.
SNN reached out to Coach Bradely for comment, but still no response.
