(KGW) An Oregon middle school football coach has been fired for planning a controversial awards dinner for kids at a Jantzen Beach Hooters said he's moving forward with the event.
The restaurant's brand includes chesty waitresses in skimpy outfits.
In the wake of his dismissal, Corbett Middle School coach Randall Burbach remained defiant about his initial decision.
"I'm not allowing myself to be bullied by a vocal minority, is the example, is the war I want to win," Burbach said.
Burbach said he's moving forward with plans for the award dinner, without district support. Hooters has even said it will pick up the tab.
