If a school administration wants to find a way to be rid of a head coach, it will find a way. Still, part of the justification used to reassign North Crowley High School coach Eugene Rogers is a true head scratcher.

According to Dave Campbell Texas Football writer Matt Stepp, Rogers was told he was being reassigned in part for “misrepresenting a student-athlete signing.” The misrepresentation being alluded to was giving a full out signing ceremony to a player who would only attend school as a proffered walk-on.
One of the reasons stated Coach Rogers was reassigned was "misrepresenting a student athlete signing" this student athlete was given a ceremony for signing as a preferred walk-on sad CISD would use this as a reason for reassigning a Coach #txhsfb

More specifically, the letter sent to Rogers claimed he “was reassigned ‘due to a pattern of poor judgment and the allegation of your conscious misrepresentation of facts regarding a student-athlete’s college signing,’” per Football Scoop’s Zach Barnett.
The confusion about the penalty is driven by the knowledge that this was hardly the first time a signing ceremony was held for a preferred walk-on. If it’s not commonplace, it’s not exactly a rarity either.
