High School Girl's Basketball Coach Resigns After Biting One Of His Players In The Face!

Filed under: ZportzBasketballViolenceSchool

high school basketball coach resigns after he bites player in the face

When you're the head coach of a high school girl's basketball, there are clear boundaries that you need to have with your players.

Well Leake Academy coach Doyle Wolverton apparently didn't realize that biting your players is a definite no-no, and it (not surprisingly) ended up costing him his job!

Yes, you read that correctly.

During a game, the coach called a timeout and brought in his girls for a huddle. But things quickly escalated when he pulled in one of his players by the jersey and BIT her on the face!!

The girl was taken to a local Mississippi hospital, where doctors called the police since the injury was caused by an assault!

Strangely, the player's parents chose to NOT press charges against him, however, the school wasn't as accepting of his face-biting antics and they asked him to resign!

Doyle was the head coach at Leake Academy for 38 years where he accumulated 1,200 wins, but it looks like he'll have to start looking for work elsewhere. Perhaps somewhere where biting your players is slightly less frowned upon!

Ch-ch-check out the full story …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Wow.

Steve Jobs is officially resigning as Apple's CEO. Let's hope he's okay.

We have a copy of his resignation letter:

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple”s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple”s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Steve

It's truly the end of an era.

Obama Believes That Anthony Weiner Will "Bounce Back"

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

Anything can happen in politics, right??

President Obama is certain that former congressman Anthony Weiner will "bounce back" from his sexting scandal.

Just a day after Weiner resigned, Obama said on GMA:

"I wish Rep. Weiner and his lovely wife well. Obviously, it's been a tough incident for him, but I'm confident that they'll refocus and he'll refocus, and they'll end up being able to bounce back."

Since the scandal broke, many Democrats have been trying to distance themselves from Weiner. Even Obama himself advised that Weiner should quit congress, saying that he "would resign" if he were in his shoes.

This certainly isn't the worst of political scandals we've seen in recent years and we're sure that with a few good PR moves, Obama could be right. We just might see Weiner pop up again in a few years!

LOLz!

Matt Lauer Leaving The Today Show Too???

Filed under: TV NewsKatie Couric

Lauer Might Leave Today Show

Right on the heels of us letting you know that Meredith Vieira could be leaving the Today Show, we're finding out that Matt Lauer might be also abandoning ship.

Could the Today Show lose both hosts??

Here's the insider Lauer tidbit:

"Matt Lauer has notified his NBC bosses that he will be resigning from the "Today" show when his contract expires on December 31, 2012."

When asked about both Vieira and Lauer, NBC just repeated that they're both currently under contract. Awesome, because that's what we wanted to know!

How's about a little transparency?!

2012 is quite the shake up year for anchors, especially since Couric is bouncin' from her job too!

How would U feel about Lauer leaving?

Charlie Sheen Fires His Publicist…After He Quit

Filed under: Charlie Sheen

charlie-sheen-fires-publicist.jpg

Did you think it was going to be that easy, Stan? Did you really think you were going to walk away without any backlash?!

Tsk, tsk! It's like you don't know the man at all!

Shortly after publicist Stan Rosenfield announced he was resigning as Charlie Sheen's publicist in an effort to save his own reputation, Charlie told sources that he's uber-pissed about this betrayal. Actually, what he told sources was:

"P**sy. He's not allowed to quit, so you’re fired."

Um, ok then. Either way, he's out, which at the end of the day, is probably all that matters to him.

Consider another bridge burnt!

It's Down To Two! Who Will Replace Andy Whitfield On Spartacus: Blood And Sand?

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

Given the really tragic circumstances surrounding this, it will be a pretty somber victory for either of these guys.

After actor Andy Whitfield's cancer returned in September and forced him to resign from his title role on the Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, the second season of the show has been in limbo as producers attempt to find a suitable replacement for the part.

Although three relatively unknown actors were said to be in contention, sources close to the production are now linking former Prison Break actor Dominic Purcell as the number one choice to replace Whitfield!

The actor is said to have e-mailed a screen-test to the Starz head honchos last Friday, and the decision is now between him and Liam McIntyre, whom we're hearing may not have the muscular frame to convincingly portray the character!

Hmm. We definitely think Liam looks a lot more like Andy, but he definitely needs to be pretty jacked if he's going to be a gladiator, so we can understand why Dominic has been pulled in for consideration, as well!

This is a toughie!

What do U think?? Who should get the part??
