"Independence Community College does not condone the language Coach Brown used in his message", Barwick said last Thursday.
Alexandros Alexiou provided KGGF Radio with a text message conversation between himself and Brown, during which the coach called himself "your new Hitler" when talking about disciplinary measures. "I have spoken with Coach Brown about his message to the student, and he fully understands that his language was not appropriate".
"The events of the past few weeks has led me to resign", Brown wrote.
"Given what has most recently been allowed to transpire, it is clear, that it will be almost impossible to stay here".
"I urge all of the naysayers on campus and in town to really look at yourself in the mirror and do a self-evaluation of yourself before so harshly judging others".
School President Dan Barwick said in a statement it was investigating the text messages. In one of them sent on February 12 to freshman Alexandros Alexiou, Brown allegedly referenced the former Nazi leader during an exchange about Alexiou's status on the team after accruing too many disciplinary infractions.
The original story and allegations came last week in the Montgomery County Chronicle - a weekly newspaper covering a small region in southeast Kansas - and later took the Internet by storm. The board decided not to take action.
Brown was hired as ICC's head coach in 2016, tasked with turning around a program with a recent history of losing. Season four, which will focus on the 2018 campaign, has already been filmed and will air on Netflix later this year. After all, he was the only white kid in his Compton, California neighborhood at a time when gang violence and racial tensions split the state like a stake through the heart.
