Coach who resigned over movie role reinstated
WESTON, Con.. -- A high school basketball coach who resigned over his acting role in a film some describe as vulgar and sexually explicit has been reinstated.
Weston High boys basketball coach Mike Hvizdo (VIZZ'-doh) resigned Feb. 6 after meeting with school officials, who had received an email informing them about the decade-old, nine-minute movie titled "Forbidden Fruit."
On Friday the school announced that Hvizdo was allowed to rescind his resignation. Dozens of people including team members packed a school board meeting earlier this week in the wealthy suburb urging officials to reinstate Hvizdo.
Hvizdo and his supporters say there's no nudity or pornography in the movie. But school officials initially said the movie is sexually explicit, vulgar, depicts sex acts and hinders Hvizdo's ability to be a role model.
