WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County School Board fired a high school coach accused of groping and biting two female students.

Police arrested James Thaddies earlier this year after the girls came forward, and he was reassigned.

His criminal case is still pending.

Before coaching football and track at Atlantic High School in Delray Beach, Thaddies was arrested for a similar crime in Minnesota. He was never convicted.

His termination is effective November 29.
