Hughes protests to LISD board to get coaching job back

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A well-loved Lubbock coach with a great win/loss record continues the legal fight after being fired. Shirlene Hughes was fired in June as Coronado girls' basketball coach but allowed to keep her teaching position. 

On Thursday the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees will meet with Hughes and possibly her attorney behind closed doors in a specially called meeting.  The legal term for this meeting is a "Level III Grievance."  Level I was the school principal.  Level II was an appeal to Superintendent Karen Garza. 

Back in May, The school system told her that she was fired from her coaching duties while keeping her teaching position for several reasons including showing up late for practice. But Hughes said at the time that the school is nit picking and counting times when she was two or three minutes late. Hughes took her teams to 17 post season appearances in 20 years.

The Board of Trustees has the option to take a vote on Hughes grievance.
