Durham, N.C. — A judge found Henry Frazier III not guilty Monday of violating a protective order in contacting his estranged wife last month.
Frazier lost his job as head football coach at North Carolina Central University after his Aug. 12 arrest.
The arrest was Frazier's second brush with the law since taking over the NCCU program in December 2010.
He was sidelined for much of summer 2012 after his initial arrest, which stemmed from a domestic dispute with his wife in May 2012. He was suspended with pay for more than two months following that incident.
Frazier's lawyers said he would appeal again to get his job back.
"He intends now to concentrate on restoring his good name, raising his minor children, and appealing to the Board of NCCU to set right the wrong that has been foisted upon him by them,” attorney Ralph Frasier said.
