Tyrone Copeland

I’m sure if you called Tyrone (see what I did there) and asked coach if it was worth it, he’d say no.

Lockland (Cincinnati) High School’s varsity football coach was arrested this week and charged with selling district-owned sports equipment on eBay.

Tyrone O. Copeland, 44, of Golf Manor, Ohio, was booked into the Hamilton County jail about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday on charges of theft in office. He was released on his own recognizance this morning and ordered to stay away from the school.

According to court documents, Copeland sold 25 pairs of football knee pads in September on eBay for $128.50 in cash. He also sold 24 pair of football thigh pads for $125 in cash, documents state.

A record, embarrassment, legal fees, and more likely a loss of job all for $253.50.

The case against Copeland will be presented to a grand jury for indictment November 6th.
