Southeast Kansas coach to German player: ‘I’m your new Hitler’

News

A Kansas football coach best known for his appearance in the Netflix documentary series “Last Chance U,” is accused of telling a player that he is his “new Hitler.”

Independence Community College head football coach Jason Brown allegedly sent the text messages to German-born player Alexandros Alexiou, according to KGGF News Radio

In the messages, Brown allegedly called the player a “German f—” and told him to “quit being disobedient” before telling Alexiou he was cut from the team.

Independence Community College President Dan Barwick said the college is investigating the matter in a statement to KOAM News shared with KSNT.

“Independence Community College does not condone the language Coach Brown used in his message,” Barwick said. “I have spoken with Coach Brown about his message to the student, and he fully understands that his language was not appropriate.”

The college’s board of trustees held an emergency meeting regarding a personnel matter on Wednesday evening. The meeting ended without action or comment, KGGF reports. 

Brown and the Independence Community College football team were the features of the Netflix documentary series “Last Chance U.”
