FRAZEE (KFGO) -- The Frazee-Vergas School Board has decided not to renew the contract of wrestling coach John Barlund.
Barlund was suspended for five-days without pay for kicking a 13 year old in the groin in February after the boy hit him with a Badminton birdie. Barlund was also suspended from coaching for the rest of the season, which included sections and the state tournament.
Barlund can appeal the board's decision. Even though his teaching contract isn't being renewed, he is still employed with the district as a phy-ed teacher.
