Former Sherman Football Coach Hospitalized In Dallas

Posted:

DALLAS, TX -- Former Sherman High School head football coach Gary Kinne has been hospitalized in Dallas.

Kinne is reported to be alert and in stable condition at Baylor University Medical Center. Doctors are evaluating him and there's no word on what ailment he is suffering from.

Kinne resigned from his post in January after being dismissed as athletic director last fall.

In October, Kinne was suspended for one game just one day before the 115th Battle of the Ax after the University Interscholastic League said he violated rules on "non-school participation" by having players participate in a showcase outside of Texas over the summer.

Kinne was critically wounded in 2005 while coaching in Canton, southeast of Dallas, when he was shot by an athlete's father.

Jeff Doyal Robertson, who believed his son was being treated unfairly, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Kinne came to Sherman in 2009 and the school district is currently looking for a replacement.
