Fired Wrestling Coach Rejoining the Team

View Comments ()


    A Montgomery County high school wrestling coach will rejoin the team after he was fired for shaving two students' heads.

    Brandon Shapiro coached the Churchill High wrestling squad. He said he buzzed two wrestlers' heads to build team camaraderie.

    He was fired after one of the students' parents complained.

    Shapiro told NBC Washington he will rejoin the team Monday as a volunteer coach, not as head coach.
