WESTON - Parents at Weston High School believe a basketball coach was forced to resign.

Mike Hvizdo was the boy's basketball head coach before stepping down earlier this month.

The superintendent's office says Hvizdo actually stepped down willingly.

They say that he was in a short film about 10 years ago that, in the superintendent's opinion, contained explicit and vulgar, although not illegal, material.  They say that compromises his ability to be a role model and lead the kids.

Hvizdo declined to comment on the issue.
