Coach Found Dead After Allegations of Inappropriate Conduct Arises


BURKBURNETT- A City View ISD coach took his own life Monday evening after being placed on administrative leave.

According to KFDX, on Jun. 28, law enforcement has confirmed that the Head Boys Basketball Coach Bobby Morris at City View High School has committed suicide at his home in Burkburnett, Texas. Family became concerned after a cryptic Facebook post and called authorities for a welfare check.

In the post, Morris apologized to his family for the weakness in his life and to remember that he loved them. The post has been removed from Facebook.

Morris was placed on administrative leave after multiple allegations of inappropriate conduct were made on social media over the weekend.

On Facebook, screenshots were shown from alleged victims detailing inappropriate stories and encounters with Morris.

Tony Bushong, City View ISD Superintendent said in a statement:

“City View ISD has a zero-tolerance policy toward inappropriate conduct with students by our employees. We have read multiple allegations on social media regarding one of our employees, and we are investigating the allegations in the best way we can. Unfortunately, this investigation is difficult because we have not received any complaints at the District, and no one has come forward to the District to file a complaint against any of our employees. Nonetheless, we are fully cooperating with all law enforcement agencies. The safety and well-being of our students are our priorities.”
