Statement from West Fargo coach Jim Jonas

by Mike McFeely

I received via e-mail a note from West Fargo teacher/coach Jim Jonas, who was asked to resign from two coaching positions (football, boys basketball) without explanation.

We talked about the situation on my show Monday, and here is an in-depth look at the story that was in The Forum today: 

I asked Jim to appear on my program today on KFGO, but he declined and said this e-mail is the only statement he wants to make.


At this time, I would like to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time.
I love being a coach.

I am sorry for the embarrassment I have brought to my family, friends, and West Fargo.
As a coach, it was always my intention to try and bring out the best in my players.

At this time I will hold my head high, man up and move forward.

 Coach Jonas
