After a nine-hour hearing that lasted until almost 3 a.m. this morning, the North Little Rock School Board
affirmed the recommended firing of high school football coach Brad Bolding
for violation of district procedures on purchasing and for recruiting a star player.
The School Board split on five separate allegations from Superintendent Kelly Rogers — from 7-0 to 4-3 votes — but all upheld administrative findings.

Bolding's attorney, David Couch, said he'd appeal the decision to Circuit Court. Bolding has been suspended with pay since mid-January.
