Mike Hvizdo is getting his coaching position back on Saturday, according to News12.

School officials released a statement saying that they have "worked through the issues" surrounding his resignation.

About 100 people showed up at the Weston Board of Education's regular meeting on Feb. 25 to voice their support of Hvizdo and request that he be reinstated.

The Weston High School boys basketball team will finish their season without their head coach.

Mike Hvizdo, the team's second year coach, resigned earlier this month, according to The Westport News.

In a letter sent out to parents earlier this month, Weston school administrators said the film "is vulgar, contains offensive sexual language, and depicts sexual acts among multiple partners in which Mr. Hvizdo is a participant," according to The News.

Though Hvizdo's name allegedly appeared on the Internet Movie Database listing for the film—"Forbidden Fruit"—it has since been removed.

Following Hvizdo's resignation, parents and players supported the former coach, according to The Weston Forum.

Hvizdo and his wife, Carissa, are owners of The Stand juice shops in Fairfield and Norwalk.

I have to call a foul on "The Patch" for the choice of pictures. Why would you select a picture showing his place of employment. Local business need support, this is the farthest thing from support.
