Locally famous basketball coach starts fight to get her job back

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –  A well-known and well-loved Coronado High School girls basketball coach wants her job back. 

KCBD NewsChannel 11 broke the story of new developments in the case of Shirlene Hughes during our news at noon on Thursday. Hughes has a grievance hearing Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. at Coronado High School. 

The school system told her that she was fired from her coaching duties (but would retain her teaching position) for several reasons including showing up late for practice. But Hughes says the school is nit picking; counting times when she was two or three minutes late.

Her win / loss record was impressive with 17 post season appearances in 20 years.

Correction: We reported that Coach Hughes was fired.  That information was not specific and it should have said she was fired from coaching the team but remains in her teaching position.
