Girls soccer coach removed

Liberty High School boys basketball coach Jevon Green was suspended for the remainder of his contract after being arrested Dec. 26 for failure to appear in court after driving with a suspended license.Police responded to a burglary alarm at Liberty Dec. 26 to find Green doing laundry inside the building, according to John Urquhart, spokesman for the King County Sheriff’s Office. Police ran a check on Green, discovered the warrant for his arrest and took him into custody. His bail was set at $350.

Kathy Miyauchi, district executive director of personnel services, and Patrick Murphy, executive director of high schools for the district, wrote a letter to the Liberty community addressing the matter.

In the letter, Miyauchi and Murphy said the incident occurred while Green was acting in his official capacity as the team’s coach and that his suspension came after an investigation by district officials. They did not give any details on the incident, nor did they comment further.

Eric Larson served as the boys basketball head coach for the remainder of the season.

Green could not be reached for comment.

Also, girls soccer coach Darren Tremblay was removed from his position as girls soccer coach.

“Liberty High School just felt it was time to go in a different direction,” Stark Porter, Liberty athletic director, said about Tremblay.

Tremblay also coaches the boys team, and he will continue to serve in that position.

    If the coach was acting in his official capacity as the team’s coach, which was confirmed during the investigation. Why would the King County Sheriff feel suspicious and need to run a check? You said it in your opening sentence. A burglary alarm! The only black man in the building and the security guard didn’t know who he was! How pathetic, they hired Green at the end o the school year last year and the school security guard isn’t informed? I think there is a lot more to the story than what is covered in this article.
    BTW, I was stopped last week while driving, the officer informed me my license was suspended, of course I was shocked, however he didn’t take me to jail, and did inform me it was a jailable offense. I am not a black man. The officer gave me a notice to appear in court and sent me on my way. It is clear even in 2010 that blacks are still suppressed and this community should be embarassed to know that such behavior still exists no matter how subtle the district and school administrators try to make it. The security guard and the officer treated him like a criminal and the administration ran with it.
