A local wrestling coach who was fired after an incident with a parent last week is fighting for his job.

Owen High School wrestling coach Lucas Pokorny was fired after an incident Jan. 10 on campus that witnesses described as a confrontation with a parent. A Buncombe County Schools spokesperson said the parent has been banned from campus.

Pokorny's attorney confirmed he has filed an appeal with Buncombe County Schools. A hearing on the appeal is set for Friday.
