(CHICAGO) Fenwick High School has fired Governor Quinn's brother as boys basketball coach.
John Quinn gets to keep his job as a golden apple teacher at Fenwick, but his brother Pat took the news hard.
“He’s a kind and gentle man who understands the importance of sportsmanship and I feel that my high school has lost its soul,” the Governor said. “It’s a devastating blow to my brother John, and I think the administration there has let down the students and the alumni. And shame on them!”
Pat said his brother is a hall of fame basketball coach with 469 victories.
