Randy Burbach says:

Burbach: "I will take the responsibility for my actions."

The middle school football coach in Corbett, Oregon refused to move his team's end of season party from a Hooters in Portland, despite his job being on the line.

Burbach: "I walk the walk and talk the talk."

So Burbach won't be back as volunteer coach. Principal Paul Pearson says Hooters is:

Pearson: "Absolutely an inappropriate choice for a group of students from a school."

And while Saturday's dinner is no longer middle school sanctioned, it's still gonna happen and Hooters will pay for it and donate money to the Corbett boosters.

Burbach: "I still believe that this will be a appropriate and memorable experience for these boys."
