A Kentucky high school basketball coach resigned this week after a Facebook post by his now ex-girlfriend accused him of cheating and alleged that he was “borderline pedophile.”
According to the Bowling Green Daily News, Jason Stonebraker resigned Tuesday — two days before a postseason tournament — after Greenwood High School launched an investigation into alleged inappropriate contact with an 18-year-old student.
School officials told the newspaper they don’t have any evidence regarding Stonebraker’s relationship with a student besides the alleged electronic communication. According to police, it was a parent who first notified authorities about it.
On Monday, Stonebraker’s girlfriend uploaded a lengthy and unflattering post on Facebook, which although it has since been removed Deadspin copied it verbatim.
“I recently found out my wonderful, committed boyfriend (with whom I currently live) has been cheating on me with at least five women. They range in age and appearance and are, I’m sure, just the tip of the iceberg,”the woman, who was not named, wrote. “I’ll choose to take the high road here and not divulge their names. It all started when I stumbled upon his phone and found some very incriminating texts and pictures. For the record, I am no snooper. It’s just not my style. I was only curious, just wondering what he’d been up to. I have nothing to hide and assumed he didn’t either.”
Then she posted the letter she left him Monday at their apartment (redacted):
To Coach Jason (Stoney) Stonebraker:
YOU ARE A FOOL. You’re a liar, a cheater, and a borderline pedophile. You disgust me. You’ve used me and taken me for granted far too long. I will not waste one more precious minute with your sorry self.
You call me crazy—the lamest, most overused derogatory insult for a woman. (I know you struggle with big words, so derogatory=bad.) I’ll admit, I was crazy. Crazy for lowering my standards for you. Crazy for believing you had potential. Crazy for making excuses for your faults and overlooking your downfalls. Crazy for believing you when you told me you loved me and wanted to spend the rest of your life with me. Crazy for wasting 2 1/2 years on you. Crazy to move from Nashville to Bowling Green to be with you. Like I always say, “Behind every crazy woman is a man who made her that way.”
I couldn’t care less what you think of me. Lions do not lose sleep over opinions of sheep.
To reiterate (that means “go over it again”): I am light years out of your league. I am smarter than you, more successful than you, and kinder than you deserve. I DESERVE BETTER THAN YOU. And everyone knows it. I see the look in your friends’ eyes. The look that says “why are YOU with HIM?” None of my friends or family can stand you and have eagerly encouraged me to leave you for years. I should have listened sooner.
About the apartment: I terminated the lease weeks ago. (Yes, WEEKS.) It’s up March 31st. You have two options: 1) pay March rent or 2) GTFO. We both know you’re broke with barely an income, so I assume you’ll move back in with mommy and daddy—if they let you. Remember how happy they were when I moved to Bowling Green a year ago and you FINALLY moved out of their house? LOL
You’re a broke, 30 year old manw***e who lives with his parents. And it’s likely you’ll be without a job very soon. So lame.
I feel as though an elephant has been lifted from my shoulders—or should I say a yeti? I’ve supported you, I’ve paid for EVERYTHING, I’ve cooked, cleaned, and done your laundry. I gave you my entire heart and everything I have but still this wasn’t enough for you. You’ve wanted for nothing, yet you still felt the need for attention from other women? You just needed your ego stroked—among other things. Because that’s the kind of person you are. You are a twisted psychopath and a master manipulator of women. You flaunt a bravado to cover up your wild insecurities. You are the most pretentious egomaniac I’ve ever met. (All those big words mean “you talk a big game but you ain’t s***.”)
In conclusion, I am elated to be done with you. Thank you for giving me an easy out. I’ve struggled with wanting to leave you for months but my big heart didn’t want to hurt YOU or leave you stranded without a place to live. (Really, where are you going to go?) In light of your multiple infidelities, I have found clarity and peace. I may mourn the loss of a relationship, but I will never mourn you. I cannot wait to get you out my life. I’d rather live in a polar vortex for a hundred years than spend one more day with you.
I will go on to be the amazing, independent woman that I am: charming, successful, kind, clever, witty, faithful, talented, and wicked smart…my list of attributes is a mile long.
And you’re the fool that let me go.
Bless your stupid, stupid heart.
The woman goes on to include a P.S. that has the phrase that many would ascribe to the tone of such a post: “Hell hath no fury as that of a woman scorned …”
After the woman delivered what she believed Stonebraker had coming to him, she removed her “dirty laundry post” because while “he deserved my scorn, he doesn’t deserve it from everyone else.”
“While his actions were inappropriate, after a thorough investigation the police have found no malicious or explicit activity,” she continued. “Let’s not drag him — or anyone else — through the mud any further.”
The ex-girlfriend went on to apologize to Stonebraker, saying that she didn’t realize her post would go viral.
The high school team’s postseason play will be led by assistant coach Logan Guess.
