WFHS Coach Carl Pennington Dismissed

Wichita Falls High School basketball coach Carl Pennington has been dismissed as coach, pending an investigation of an ejection he received in Thursday's quarterfinal game in the Bulldog Classic in Burkburnett.

No timetable has been set for the investigation.

Pennington was ejected after receiving two quick technical fouls, while arguing a call during the game against Whitehouse.

He coached Friday's game against Plainview, then was told via letter about his dismissal.

This past April, his job status was the result of a special executive session of the WFISD board meeting, but his contract was renewed "unanimously, but with concerns."
