Rob Ford sacked as Don Bosco football coach

Well, he's still the mayor of Toronto, but Rob Ford was relieved of one of his head positions today. Ford has been let go as coach of the Don Bosco Eagles football program, a position he has held for the past decade.

The Toronto Catholic District School Board issued a news release earlier this afternoon, which states that the school will go "in a new direction" and that Ford has been informed of their decision. Notably, there was no reference to the alleged crack video, but the timing of the "firing" (it was a voluntary position) is sure to raise eyebrows.

The board has, however, reportedly been reviewing Ford's position as coach since March. A new coach has already been put in place. What do you think? Was this just inevitable at some point?
