Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Richard Lee Colbert, Courtney Lynch Wilbert, Franklin, Tennessee, for the appellant, James Fuller.

Attorneys 2:

Lora Barkenbus Fox, Emily Herring Lamb, Paul Jefferson Campbell, II, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, The Metropolitan Board of Public Education.

Judge(s): COTTRELL

A teacher at Overton High School, who was also a sports coach, challenged the nonrenewal of his coaching contract, claiming the nonrenewal was not in accordance with Tenn. Code Ann. § 49-5-510. The trial court found the contract was not renewed because the teacher refused to follow the guidelines for handling money collected at the sporting events and that the former coach had not met his burden of proof under the statute. We conclude the evidence supports the trial court’s ruling and affirm the judgment.
