Football coach Paul Withee resigns after naked picture appears on Facebook
Apparently Oxford Hills School District football coach Paul Withee was never taught the most important rule of sending naked pictures to your girlfriend: make sure they don’t end up on social media sites for everyone to see. According to WMTW in Maine, Withee resigned Monday after a naked picture of him ended up on Facebook. Superintendent Rick Colpitts confirmed the resignation.
The picture reportedly appeared on Facebook for about 10 minutes before Withee realized what had happened, but by that time it was too late. A parent of a student who had seen the picture called the school to report the incident. Withee insists he intended to send the picture to his girlfriend but made a mistake.
Withee had been the school district’s football coach since last March and also taught math and science at the district’s middle school. After speaking with the district attorney, Paris Police Chief David Verrier says the department has decided not to press charges because it was an accident. Now that Withee is jobless, he may want to consider taking a computer course to avoid making a similarly devastating mistake in the future.
