Hooters Party For Youth Football Team Costs Coach His Job

A football team gets to celebrate at Hooters, but as Steve McCarron of KMPH News partner Fox 12 shows us, the coach paid a big price for the decision.

The team got the party they wanted, but their coach lost his job in the process.

The Corbett Middle School football team held its end-of-the-year banquet at a Hooters in Portland, Oregon.

There were cheers and lots of food but the location cost Randy Burbach his position as volunteer coach.

The white Excursion limo pulled up and the boys stepped out into a line of waitresses cheering them on.

Coach Randy Burbach says he asked his boys weeks ago where they wanted to have their end-of-the-year banquet. They picked Hooters and he was determined to make it happen.

Football player Evan O'Neil said, "I think it's great. I'm glad that we could do this."

Teammate Dylan Paintner said, "I don't think it's that big of a deal."

Burbach stood his ground, without the school district's support.

Leaders wanted the event moved to a different venue after a parent raised concerns about the restaurant, known for its female servers and their uniforms.

When Burbach refused, the district decided he wouldn't be back next year as the team's volunteer coach.

Coach Burbach said, "I always thought it was much ado about nothing."

Susan Buss, a parent at the party said, "I think they made a big fuss about nothing. And these kids are great kids and they deserve to come to somewhere nice."

Not all players came to the party but there was plenty of food on the tables and footage from the team's games on all the TV screens.

Hooters even picked up the tab and that location is donating 20% of its sales to the Corbett youth football program.

Burbach says this banquet was never about him. "I was here before the administration that is upset. I likely will be here after them. And if the need for a coach presents itself in Corbett, I very well may likely be coaching again," said Burbach.

The team finished its season with a record of 7-2.
