Independence Community College football coach Jason Brown has resigned.

The resignation from the “Last Chance U” star came late Sunday night after Brown was accused of telling German player Alexandros Alexiou that he was his “new Hitler” during a conversation over text.

You can read his resignation letter below, in which he claimed it’d almost be “impossible” for him to stay at ICC. (RELATED: Former Florida State And ‘Last Chance U‘ Quarterback Malik Henry Transfers To Nevada)

Well, there’s a really easy way to make sure that you don’t find yourself in the same position as Brown if you’re a college football coach.

Are you ready for the advice? Here it is. Don’t allegedly tell a German player you’re his new murderous dictator.

That might sound difficult, but I promise you that it’s really not.

It should be fascinating to see if Brown gets another job somewhere else or if he got any kind of big buyout from the ICC.

Something tells me that if he does, it won’t happen for a while. Right now, he’s just too toxic. That might sound crazy, but it’s not.

No program is going to want the PR nightmare that comes along with hiring a guy who allegedly made a Hitler reference to a German player. They just don’t.
