Olympia School Board may reinstate coach

OLYMPIA -- The Olympia School Board will consider reinstating the Capital High School boys' basketball coach, who was removed after reported "forced sexual contact" between students at a summer camp.
District spokesman Ryan Betz says the board will consider comments from parents at last week's meeting who said the students, not coach Doug Galloway, should be held more accountable.
Betz says board members will consider the personnel issue in private at Monday's meeting.
The Olympian reported privacy laws prevented the district from saying exactly what happened June 30 when 32 players and five basketball camp coaches were staying at a Western Washington University dormitory.
The district said Galloway did not provide adequate supervision. He was removed as boys basketball coach but remains as a physical education teacher and girls golf coach.
