Female Basketball High School Coach Fired For Raunchy Facebook Photo With Boyfriend
An Idaho high school fired its girls’ basketball coach last week for posting a picture of her boyfriend grabbing her breast to her Facebook account while on vacation.
Laraine Cook was canned last week by Pocatello High School, just after a hardly-racy, can-grab photo was put out on the social media site.
The photo featured her in a bikini in front of a large body of water with boyfriend and Pocatello football coach Tom Harrison holding Cook’s right breast with his left hand. The shot was reportedly taken on a recent vacation. (An unidentified person is also seen in the background of the photo.)
The highly-decorated football coach wasn’t flagged for holding, however, as he was only “reprimanded” according to reports.
The picture has since been removed from social media.
So the MAN grabbing the boob is still gainfully employed, and the WOMAN getting groped is out of a job?
Players and parents attempted to get Cook reinstated as head coach last Thursday, meeting with School District 25 officials according to the AP, but their pleas fell on deaf ears.
A spokeswoman told the Associated Press that it was “a personnel decision” and hasn’t confirmed the reason for dismissal. Cook led Pocatello to a third-place finish at the Idaho State Tournament last season.
A glimmer of hope seemed to shine through as Idaho school superintendent Mary Vagner agreed to initiate another review that included Pocatello principal Don Cotant and athletic director Robert Parker, but ultimately the school stood by its decision to let Cook go, according to the AP.
Do you think Laraine deserved to lose her job over this pretty benign photo?
