LOGAN, W.Va. — The Logan County Board of Education meets Monday night and is expected to take up the controversy involving Logan High basketball coach Mark Hatcher.
Hatcher was charged with battery on a police officer and assault on a police officer after going on the floor at Chapmanville High School when a fight broke out between players from Logan and Scott.
The Chapmanville officer alleges Hatcher forcibly pushed him away. Hatcher has said he was following national rules which allow him to go onto the floor to defuse a situation.
The Logan County Board of Education has called the situation an unfortunate incident that needs a quick resolution. Hatcher has continued to coach and teach since the incident.
The Logan County school superintendent has pointed out Hatcher was neither penalized nor ejected from the game.
