Judge: Fired WSSU coach deserves an impartial hearing

By MICHAEL HEWLETT

A Forsyth County judge overturned on Monday the final decision to fire Kienus Boulware, former head football coach at Winston-Salem State University, saying that Boulware was denied due process.

But Monday's ruling doesn't mean that Boulware gets his job back. The judge has ordered a new process to ensure that Boulware gets an impartial hearing of his appeal.

Judge Richard Gottlieb of Forsyth Superior Court vacated the final decision of WSSU's Board of Trustees to fire Boulware, who had been the head football coach for five seasons. Boulware filed for a judicial review in Forsyth Superior Court of the board's decision. Gottlieb held a hearing on Sept. 3.

In his decision, Gottlieb concluded that Boulware was denied due process because a recommendation from the school's Grievance Committee was routed to Chancellor Elwood Robinson, who had initially given notice to Boulware of his intention to terminate. WSSU officials had originally told Boulware that the recommendations would go to the school's Board of Trustees. They said that the change in process was to comply with UNC system's policy.

Somebody is going to jail. Looks like they messed with the wrong Coach. Seems like the school can no longer move the goalposts.

I wish he could get his job back and restore his name as a coach. A simple payout would only help him in the short term. He still suffers with a payout and he can't get another job coaching. I'm so disappointed in my Rams... thought we where better than this.

Specific performance for employment related matters are never a good idea.  Once he gets his payout and named cleared, and with his UNC and HBCU coaching connections, he will be able to bounce back and get on with another coaching staff.  There are many coaches who have been accused of and actually committed far worse actions and they have still been able to land other coaching gigs.

I hope so.
