The Johnson County School Board accepted the resignation of Head Football Coach Pat Lynch at a special meeting Monday night. Lynch had passed an inappropriate flier to the football team prior to the game against Star Valley in October.
Following an hour-long executive session, the board reconvened and moved to approve his resignation. A letter of apology from Lynch was read aloud by Mark Gordon…
The full letter reads:

I know that this situation has caused you pain and discomfort, and for that I am truly sorry. As a person and a professional, I believe I will learn and grow from this experience and use it to help others.
I appreciate having had the opportunity to coach in this community for the past 22 years. It has been a rewarding experience. I am eager to earn back your trust as I continue to serve in a profession that I truly love.
With sincere apology, your friend in education,
Pat LynchLynch will retain his position as a guidance counselor at the high school under administrative supervision; however will no longer coach the football and weightlifting teams.
