Here's the truth, not my truth.
Brian Sinchak had a vision to build JFK into a college prep school that focused on academics and the arts, and de-emphasized sports. This was his vision and he tried to implement it. He's not stupid but he misread the room. He fired Pomp because a board member didn't like his language. He left Nappy alone because he's not a fool. However, Nappy resigned in June 2011 and he had picked his longtime assistant Dave Pappada. Gotti was an assistant on this staff. Pappada was never "the guy." The board seeing the direction of the school with enrollment and a loss of focus on sports, sought a new direction in the head football coach.
Pappada was not renewed. A search was begun, but the committee knew that best candidates wouldn't apply because of Brian's perceived lack of support. Jeff Bauyk was contacted and after several meetings and assurances that he would be supported, he agrees to come. With only one condition, that Dom Prologo would agree to be his DC. The talent was in place for state championship team, everyone saw it, Jeff included.
With Bayuk in place, and football protected, the next 6 years resulted 1 state championship, 1 regional finals, 2 regional semi-finals and 5 total playoff appearances. CH was their kryptonite. Along the way, Brian saw the writing on the wall and left without much warning and the school wasn't ready with his replacement. Joe K was a lower campus principal and was promoted during this time to HS principal. He stepped into as interim president.
The board wanted a long time board member and well respected graduate of Kennedy to be the next president, but only as a part time position. Because lets be real, it's really only a part time position. Joe K is excellent principal and educator, fundraising really isn't his strength. Joe wanted to stay at K and was the best candidate given the Bishop's desire that the position be full time. The Bishop would not entertain a part time president. Joe was viewed as being a strong advocate of sports and really seemed to be an appropriate choice.
Eventually, Bayuk becomes the AD and and all is well. Until god damned Brian Flores becomes the MFing head coach of the Miami Dolphins and hires his buddy Kurt Kuntz (head coach of Struthers for 7 years) as the defensive backs coach. Well, John Bayuk becomes the HC at Struthers and very understandably, Jeff leaves JFK to be his OC. JFK is in a good place, Pro is ready to be the HC and the job becomes his. Life is good.
But for reasons that escape me, Joe and Pro are not a match. Things aren't easy going. The relationship deteriorated to the point that Pro had to step aside. Basically, all the has to happen, is Joe needs to focus on donors, budgets, buildings, and such. Stay out of athletics. Let Al run the show. Hire good coaches and let them run the show. And tell the racist parents to GTFO.
And while you're at it. BUILD A GOD DAMNED GIRLS PROGRAM TOO.
