Frazier requests NCCU board hearing over termination

Posted October 2, 2013

Former head football coach Frazier requested the NC Central Board of Trustees, or the President and the Board of Governors to mediate a hearing between Frazier and the Chancellor Debra Saunders White over his termination.

"Coach Frazier has maintained that under his negotiated contract drafted by NCCU he had a due process right to defend himself against false and/or malicious prosecution or accusations. A mere 39 days after his termination Coach Frazier was found not guilty in a matter in which he claimed his innocence, yet NCCU refused to wait with the Chancellor confirming his termination 5 days before Coach Frazier exercised his due process rights," Frazier's national counsel Linda Kenney Baden said in a statement on Frazier's behalf Wednesday.

A judge found Henry Frazier III not guilty Monday of violating a protective order in contacting his estranged wife last month.

Frazier lost his job as head football coach at North Carolina Central University after his Aug. 12 arrest. The arrest was Frazier's second brush with the law since taking over the NCCU program in December 2010.

He was sidelined for much of summer 2012 after his initial arrest, which stemmed from a domestic dispute with his wife in May 2012. He was suspended with pay for more than two months following that incident.
