The head coach of Havre High School wrestling is back in action after completion of an inhouse inquiry, the Havre Public Schools Superintendent said this afternoon.
Superintendent Andy Carlson said coach Scott Filius was taken off administrative leave and reactivated at 12:19 p.m. today after completion of the inquiry.
“I received the inquiry (and it is completed),” Carlson said. “I have confidence in the integrity of the inquiry.”
Carlson confirmed earlier this morning that Filius, the highly successful wrestling coach who has led the Blue Pony team to seven state championships including all first- or second-place finishes in the last seven years, had been placed on administrative leave pending the completion of the inquiry. He declined this morning to give any details about the leave or the inquiry.
This afternoon, Carlson also said he would not provide any details on the issue.
“We want to protect our folks, and we want to protect our students,” he said.
