Sidelined Coach To Go Before Lee County School Board

Posted April 8, 2004 11:44 a.m. EDT

— Lee County School Board members will try to tackle the controversy surrounding a football coach's removal Thursday.

Superintendent Barry Aycock removed head coach Lee County High School head coach Charlie Groves in February.

The school superintendent says Groves was reassigned because of a lack of community support.

Aycock and Groves are expected to tell their sides at a closed hearing.

The school board could keep the decision, modify it or overturn it. It has 30 days to render a decision.
