Laraine Cook was recently fired after a controversial photo of her was found on her Facebook (FB) page sometime in October.
The Huffington Post reports that Cook lost her job as the girls’ basketball coach at Pocatello High School in Idaho for posting a picture of her fiancé — Tom Harrison — holding her breast. The photo took place in July during a family vacation and she was reprimanded after the photo was leaked to the school. Cook was fired soon after but she is looking to put up a fight to get her job back.
“I don’t feel it’s an immoral photo, and that’s what the termination’s based on,” Cook told Local 8 News. “I would love to be able to coach those girls again. I love teaching. I love coaching. I love working with kids.”
Many of the girls’ parents are backing her up and believe that she is a good person with one parent saying that her daughter has been empowered by Coach Cook in basketball and in life.
