The former head coach of Miyamura High School’s football program has been fired – and arrested after being accused of stealing money from one of his players.
New Mexico State Police in Gallup say they were made aware of a theft at Miyamura last Wednesday. During the investigation, they say that 42-year-old John Roanhaus – son of Hall of Fame coach Eric Roanhaus – was observed on video entering the football locker room. Roanhaus was serving as the Patriots’ head coach at the time.
And then, Roanhaus is seen on the video taking $40 from a football player’s wallet and putting it into his sock, according to the State Police.
