Story link

Boton Globe excerpt:

“A wrestling coach who was fired from Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School after hazing allegations surfaced last month is threatening to sue for back pay and contends that serious hazing on other sports teams has been ignored, according to his lawyer.

Paul F. Wynn, a lawyer representing former wrestling coach Jeff Francis, sent a letter to the Globe on Feb. 27 to “refute the false allegations’’ that Francis was involved in an alleged hazing episode that took place at a wrestling practice.”
