    When North Hardin removed the interim tag from boys’ basketball coach Mike Cofer, it could have been considered the easy thing to do.

    Cofer was already a teacher at North Hardin and it would save the trouble of finding a coach who also needed a teaching job.

    While that might be true, it was the right thing to do.
