SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A high school football coach suddenly resigned Wednesday after an explicit photo surfaced online and spread quickly among students.

The Sacramento Unified School District confirmed Thursday that officials accepted the resignation of John F. Kennedy High School football coach Henry Lusk, but offered few details in the matter.

Students said a revealing photo of a man in a compromising position spread like wildfire on Thursday, with much of the student body saying the man strongly resembles the former head coach.

Lusk did not return any phone calls and did not answer his door during repeated attempts to contact him Thursday.

The resignation comes less than a week after Kennedy High’s football team made news for a bench-clearing brawl in the final minutes of a game against McClatchy High. The two teams’ games this week were canceled as punishment for the fight.

The source of the explicit photo has not been confirmed.

    It was a private photo. News crews should leave him alone. So should everyone else! Whoever released this, should be brought up on charges. As far as I can tell from all the news and reports at school. it was not the coach who did this.
    Privacy was compromised big time! And others have gotten arrested for stealing and posting things like this and have prison time.
    Don’t let this one go by.

    WOW, sorry but if this guy is coaching my kid I want to know about his modeling career after all he is in the locker rooms. I get that teachers are human too, but he should have thought what taking photos of himself like that could do if they got out. It’s his fault that picture even exhists not the person who had a duty to get it out as he works with kids! He’s a pervert!

    why would anyone take such a picture in their bathroom which seems to be the case here and then send it out on the net? was he sending it as porn to a lover, of either gender, or is he a closet pedophile or what? don’t get why anyone would take such a photo of themselves and send it out on the net. whatever, it is extreme poor judgement on his part.

    Maybe there is more to come ??? I wouldn’t think he would resign if it were a nude photo unless there is more to come like, one of him with a student.

  8. Strange says:

    He kicks a player (justifiably) off the football team. Then the photo comes out……..who would be mad enough to send it out………the player who got kicked off???……… and why would the kid have the photo??….. Was there some sort of inappropriate relationship going on with the player or another student????????? Pretty suspicious………

    If he wanted a picture of his butt, usa a kodak camera. keep it private.

    I dont understand what the big deal is. This was this guys personal photo that someone posted of him. I dont think that he should be harrassed by the news station or by the school. I could send my personal photos to my boyfriend in Iraq and they could have ended up in neglectful hands or in the middle of a bitter rage. You dont know. I would never judge someone for that photo. It was personal but it was innocent. Maybe he has a ex-girl out there who thought that was attractive at one point and now she is bitter and wanted revenge.

    LOL another Wiener

    Everybody knows most guys wear jock straps, I’m sure he was taking a pic of his back, to see his results. ALL GUYS DO THIS, especially if u workout. He just happened to have a jock strap on.
    Whoever is posting this pic needs to be apprehended, and punished to the fullest extent of the law. This pic is being published without this man’s consent. I see nothing funny about this at all. How would u all feel if someone stole ur private pics, and posted for the world to see without ur consent? Better yet compromised ur debit/check card?

    Can I get his number?

  14. Jarrod Hubbard says:

    Lost his job for that? Seriously? Remember America? Man that was fun, we should do that again sometime.

  15. Whitey says:

    Uh, Mace, not all guys do this. I don’t need a picture of my ass… for any reason, really.

    If you send something like this over the internet… or to another person… you take assumed risks.

    Lastly, if you’re a politician… or teacher… or corporate giant like Michael Lyon… you really need to live life cleaner than everybody else. If that doesn’t feel fair, do something else for a living. Some people are held to a higher standard and that’s all there is to it.

    1. Whitey2 says:

      Spoken like a true WHITEY LMAO…he can take pics of his back in his home…whoever stole his pics is in serious trouble. I hope it wasn’t u, and if u don’t like it LOG OFF THE INTERNET
