A middle school football coach who was fired for his plan to hold his team's awards ceremony at Hooters is getting a second chance.

At Hooters. Not at coaching the Corbett Middle School football team.

The still-fired Portland-area volunteer was released of his duties by the athletic director of the school this week, after it was discovered what the coach had in store. Hooters stepped in and offered to host the team's party for free, solidifying the coach's decision to just go ahead and have the party there anyway. The Jantzen Beach Hooters location will also be giving the school's booster $1,000 and 20% of their sales on Saturday.

Regardless of his employment situation, the coach is getting himself, the team, and the school plenty of attention, which I'm sure is what the school had been trying to get out of firing him.
