The California judge who was recalled from office over his lenient sentence for Brock Turner , a college student convicted of felony sexual assault, was hired as a girls’ junior varsity tennis coach at a high school in San Jose. Michael Aaron Persky was removed from office in 2018 after a recall effort

“He was a highly qualified applicant, having attended several tennis coaching clinics for youth and holds a high rating from the United States Tennis Association,” the district said.

The school previously held a meeting with the parents of tennis team members to give them background about Persky’s situation, which garnered national attention.

“Our focus remains on ensuring that our students have the best possible educational experience–both academically and athletically,” the district said.

It wasn’t immediately clear why Persky was fired from the coaching position.

Persky was recalled from his position as a judge by voters in June 2018 after the controversial sentencing in the Stanford sexual assault case.

The recall effort was launched after Persky sentenced Brock Turner to six months in jail for sexually assaulting a young woman outside a fraternity house on campus. Turner was released from jail for good behavior after serving three months. He is registered for life as a sex offender.

Mike Leach: Friday is for high school football in Texas.
Friday nights in the fall are sacred for Texas high school football, and Mike Leach tends to agree. But with television serving as an influencer for kickoff dates and times, it has not been uncommon for college games to be played on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and even Sunday. Houston will play at least one game on each of those days this season, including Friday's AdvoCare Texas Kickoff against No. 20 Washington State at NRG Stadium. "I'm sort of with Texas on this, Texas has always kind of reserved Friday night games because they think it impinges on high school games," said Leach, the head coach at Washington State who spent nearly a decade at Texas Tech.
