Coach Fired For Hooters Party Plan

A Portland, Ore.-area middle school football coach who said he was willing to lose his job rather than back down from plans for a team party at Hooters has lost his job. The athletic director for the Corbett School District, Jean-Paul Soulagnet, sent a letter to parents Monday night telling them the end-of-season awards party at Hooters was no longer a Corbett Middle School event. KGW reports the athletic director also fired coach Randy Burbach for refusing to choose a more appropriate location. Burbach said he would not bow to pressure to move the party, because he always told his boys to stand up for what they believe in/AP. More here.

Question: Anyone think the fired coach in question has principles or common sense?
