Roy vs. LCA 09 boys basketball 121118

Roy High School boys basketball coach Terry Schriver resigned his coaching position Monday, according to a Weber School District spokesman.

Schriver, a health and career/technical education teacher at the school, had been on paid administrative leave for about three weeks. The leave stemmed from an investigation into circumstances following a Roy basketball game earlier this season, district spokesman Lane Findlay said.

It was a game Roy won, prompting a celebration in the locker room. During that celebration, according to Findlay, a song with vulgar and obscene lyrics was played, which prompted a complaint.

Findlay could not divulge who made the complaint. It’s not clear what song was played or who was responsible for its playing.

The district and school investigated the matter and reinstated Schriver on Monday; he resigned shortly thereafter for personal reasons, according to Findlay.

Findlay said the outcome of the investigation didn’t affect Schriver’s status as a coach or a teacher and the decision to resign was Schriver’s. He remains a teacher in good standing at Roy.

Schriver and Roy athletic director Mike Puzey would not comment on the situation and deferred questions to Findlay.

Schriver was named head coach of the program before the 2016-17 season. The Royals went 11-11 that season and missed the playoffs competing in 5A Region 1. Last year, Roy qualified for the state playoffs as the No. 4 seed out of Region 5.

The Royals are 4-7 this season and begin region games Friday. Assistant coach Eric Anderson will be the team’s acting head coach.
