The South Sioux City school district has released video that led to dismissal of soccer coach Marla Grier.
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE (KTIV) -
Last month, the long-time coach of South Sioux City's boys soccer team, Marla Grier was released from her duties as head soccer coach. The dismissal came after an incident during the team's return from the state tournament in Omaha.
A law firm representing the South Sioux City School District has released security camera video of the incident.
Assistant coach Jose Gonzalez told SportsFource -- the bus broke down returning from Omaha. It was a warm night, and Gonzalez says Coach Grier eventually let the players out of the bus to cool off while the bus was being fixed.
Gonzalez believes the school thought Grier had endangered the players safety by letting them out of the bus, near traffic.
An attorney representing the South Sioux City Community School District has reviewed the case and released this statement at the request of Superintendent Vernon Fisher.
The statement reads in part, "After thorough review, it has been determined that district policy and procedures were followed by the administration and the facts of the investigation justify the decision to dismiss Mrs Grier as Head Coach."
Grier continues to teach in the South Sioux City school system.
