LaTarzja Henry, executive director of communications for CMS, told the Observer Friday that coach Butler violated a local policy for recruiting and would not be allowed to coach a CMS team again. Henry said the penalty had nothing to do with the state championship team or its players.
Butler will be allowed to keep her job as a physical education teacher.
Henry said CMS received a phone tip and started an investigation this month. Sources close to the high school said it involved contact Butler had with two families from a local rival school.
