(POCATELLO, ID) – Another girls basketball coach at Pocatello High School has been fired.  Natalie Lewis, who worked as an assistant under former head coach Laraine Cook, was let go earlier this month. Cook was fired in October because of a controversial Facebook photo, but administrators haven’t disclosed why Lewis was fired. Lewis says she was offered a job to coach the freshman girls team, but turned it down. Efforts to restore Cook’s job are underway. An online petition supporting Cook on change.org has garnered nearly 3,000 signatures.
