High school football coach reinstated after winning $1.7 million settlement


Joseph Kennedy was terminated from his high school football coaching position after he continued to conduct post-game prayers with students. Kennedy is now set to receive $1.7 million after the Bremerton School Board in Washington state accepted a settlement. He will also get his job back starting this upcoming season. The school board's decision follows the Supreme Court’s ruling in June that Kennedy’s prayer groups were protected by the First Amendment.
