'Last Chance U' coach resigns from Kansas community college

Jason Brown, the coach of the Independence Community College featured on season three of Netflix's "Last Chance U", resigned from the position late Sunday night. In one text message, Brown referred to disciplinary points that the German player had accrued, berated him and said, "I'm your new Hitler". Yeah I'd say that's enough to warrant an exit from the school. He created non-stop awkward moments with his explosions and his masterful use of profanity. "I urge all the naysayers on campus and in town to really look at yourself in the mirror and do a self-evaluation of yourself before so hardly judging others".

The story reported a text exchange between Brown and freshman Alexandros Alexiou, who had posted the messages on social media.

"It is with strong emotions that I announce my decision to resign as Head Football Coach at Independent Community College [.] Given what has most recently been allowed to transpire, it is clear, that it will be almost impossible to stay here".

"These accomplishments were only made possible through the hard work and perseverance of a group of dedicated players and coaches that bought into a common goal, took tremendous pride in representing Independence, and loved 'DREAMU, '" Brown wrote.

Messages seeking comment from ICC president Daniel Barwick were not immediately returned Monday, but he previously told KOAM that Brown's comments were unacceptable. "The college is investigating the matter and will have no further statement at this time".

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, & Maya Rudolph Hilariously Open the Oscars 2019
There was no host for the 91st Academy Awards this year, but Tina Fey , Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph nearly made us forget. You might've heard that after much Kevin Hart-related controversy , the Oscars opted to go host-less this year.

Brown told the player that he was his "new Hitler" and had his scholarship taken away.

The Pirates went 9-2 and reached a bowl game that season, though Brown's abrasive style got most of the headlines.

Brown stepped down after more than three years at Independence, which won the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference in 2017.

After the Netflix documentary series debuted, there was a strong initial reaction to Brown.
