Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. And those who can't teach can steal expensive jewelry from their high school students and then get caught after selling the stolen valuables to a pawn shop. They're going to love this guy in prison.
Kevin Strasser, head coach for Oregon City High School, was arrested yesterday after being accused of stealing a student's wristwatch, then selling it to a pawnshop.
In his defense, it was a nice watch. A "jewel-encrusted Ice Time model with many features." And he would have gotten away with the May theft, had not the student's friend noticed it in a local pawnshop earlier this week. A call to the police, a check of the pawnshop's records, and it was off to jail. Strasser made bail, probably because he pawned a watch, remember?
Strasser is suspended indefinitely, and is charged with suspicion of first-degree theft and official misconduct.
Strasser came to Oregon City after nearly a decade in the CFL. Most recently, he was the Edmonton Eskimos' offensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010.
