CHIRENO, TX (KTRE) – Chireno girls basketball coach Pam Muse continues to fight the Chireno ISD's May decision to terminate her contract.

Friday, Muse appeared before an independent third party to appeal her case.

Muse tells KTRE, she feels positive about today's testimony, but that a decision is yet to be reached.

The hearing officer has until August 16th to make a final decision.

A letter from the Chireno school board to Muse listed her leaving a student behind on an extracurricular activity as one of the reasons for her termination.

Muse says no matter what happens, she will not return to Chireno as a teacher or a coach.
