David Rutledge will return to New Hanover County as a teacher next school year.
Rutledge was recommended for non-renewal after it was announced that he would no longer be Ashley's Boys Basketball coach.
Rutledge said the board voted privately and unanimously to overturn the recommendation for non-renewal.
According to New Hanover County Schools spokesperson Valita Quattlebaum, Rutledge has been offered a one year contract to teach.
There is no word just yet on whether or not Rutledge will return to Ashley or teach at another school in New Hanover County.
Rutledge said he is happy to continue teaching in New Hanover County.
