Yes, sad, but the fact is the Coach Hurley's basketball empire was attached to a lackluster school. From accounts for students and former teachers, the school was used as a cover for a basketball factory. Sometimes jock culture and help a school attract students and develop morale. Too often it makes academics secondary.
The mission of the Catholic school in transmitting and defending the faith of its students and of exposing non Catholic students to the faith in a way to engender interest has been dead since the 1960s. The auto demolition of all the religious and monastic orders is part and parcel of this.
The hierarchy hates schools because they take work and require faith. The charter school industry is like heroine to pastors. He closes the school which had been creating a deficit for the parish of say 500,000 yearly. THen he rents it out to a local charter- call the Masonic Ethical Charter School whose values are diametrically opposed to Christianity. What does the pastor care? He now gets $40k per month in rent- income greater than his old deficit. He can pop the Veuve Cliqoue because now he does not even need to curry favor with those pesky parishioners who want to worship God. The pastor can now take even more vacations and ply his boyfriends/victims with bigger gifts.
When the Son of Man returns will there be any faith left on earth?
