FALLON, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Mitch Overlie will not serve as an Assistant Track Coach for the Churchill County School District this spring, the district confirmed on Thursday.
Superintendent Dr. Sandra Shelden says the reasons are confidential, and she added she knows nothing about a lifetime ban that has been circulating as a rumor.
Overlie was the Head Wrestling Coach during the hazing incident in Las Vegas that involved a 15-year-old student. Recently, a civil lawsuit was settled, and it cost the school district more than $700,000.
Overlie has been the Wrestling Coach for more than 10 years, and he also is the Head Cross-Country Coach.
