Online petition aims to fire Steubenville head coach

Posted: Updated:

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio - More fallout on Tuesday where two high school football players were convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl.

An online petition is calling for school administrators to fire Big Red head coach Reno Saccocia.

The petition has around 40,000 signatures. The school superintendent says no action will be taken until the grand jury has completed its investigation.

The key to the petition, according to the page, is text messages that were brought forward in court that alleged the coach would take care of things if the rape case went to court.
