Coach Admits to Using High School Softball Team Players to Pick Up Girls

Coach Troy Hennum has resigned from Roosevelt High School in Seattle after admitting to using his girls’ softball team to get dates. Come on Coach — the girls are supposed to be the players, not YOU!

In hindsight, sending his teen team into a sporting goods store to pick up on employee Kat Aagard, 25, might not have been the best idea (uh, duh!). The girls asked for Kat’s number and her picture, and passed it along to their coach, who started talking to her via text message.

“I wasn’t sure what to think at first,” Kat told ABC News. According to the text messages that Kat shared with ABC affiliate KOMO-TV, Coach Hennum was not embarrassed about letting his young ladies to get dates, and rather bragged, “‘Right? Genius. Great way to meet a girl. Use my girls. LOL.’”

Sorry, Coach, but it’s more creepy than LOL. Nevertheless, Kat continued talking to the special education teacher and coach for more than an hour over text. “He seemed like a nice enough guy for awhile,” she said.

However, after digging up some dirt on Troy, Kat had a change of heart. She found some articles online about him leaving another school after texting a student in April 2012, so Kat contacted the principal at Roosevelt to let him know about Coach Hennum’s little pick-up plan. “I was completely shocked to see something inappropriate happened with this coach before,” Kat said.

So it wasn’t a love connection, and Troy ultimately lost his job, but at least he was kind of a gentleman about it. In a voicemail apologizing to Kat, Coach Hennum reportedly said, “I want to call and, first off, sincerely apologize for any inconvenience myself or the team caused you.”

We’re not sure his apology VM is good enough, but at least he made the call himself!
