Gary Barns suspended for 15 months from coaching position at Goodrich

Posted: October 31, 2012 by Jared Field in High School

Gary Barns, the highly-successful head basketball coach at Goodrich High School, has apparently received a 15-month suspension from the school district, effectively ending his career at the school.

I’m told the suspension is as a result of what the district perceives as a failure to monitor his staff as well as for an incident during which the veteran coach used an inappropriate word in front of his team at halftime.

This is such a sad ending to a great career for Coach Barns, who continues to struggle with the declining health of his son, the former head coach of the JV team at Goodrich.

Coach Barns and his family deserved better, and I think a lot of people will agree.
