Karns Coach Back On Job, Recieves Written Reprimand

Knoxville (WVLT) - Karns High School head football coach John Fulkerson is back on the job, but his personnel file is a bit thicker.

Fulkerson received another letter of reprimand from the Knox County School District.

The district says Fulkerson acted inappropriately when he pulled a student from her desk by the arm when she couldn't find a pencil sharpener and called her stupid.

Fulkerson has been assigned to an Intensive Training Program designed to help teachers overcome challenges in the classroom.

In June, Fulkerson also received a written reprimand following a school district investigation that revealed he allegedly made comments that one student took as inappropriate.
