St. Raymond’s coach Oliver Antigua could lose his job in the wake of the Kevin Parrom incident, according to Dan Martin of the New York Post.
“It’s 50-50 right now,” a source told Martin. “It doesn’t look good. The school and the league aren’t happy about any of this.”
St. Raymond’s AD Ron Patnosh said that Parrom, a 6-6 forward with offers from Rutgers and St. John’s, will not be back at the Bronx school.
“He’s a good kid,” Patnosh told Martin. “But that’s a done deal.”
Meanwhile, Gary Charles, Parrom’s AAU coach said he wasn’t certain which school Parrom would end up at, although South Kent (Conn.) coaches have watched him play. South Kent produced incoming Rutgers freshman Christian Morris.
