    PORTLAND – Corbett Middle School football coach Randall Burbach has been fired for planning a controversial awards dinner for kids at a Jantzen Beach Hooters.

    The restaurant's brand includes chesty waitresses in skimpy outfits.

    In the wake of his dismissal, Burbach remained defiant about his initial decision.

    "Not allowing myself to be bullied by a vocal minority is the war I want to win," Burbach said. "[It] is the only war I can win right now."

    Burbach said he wasn't planning to take the boys to Hooters for the "sexual overtones that the upset families are casting on the restaurant."

    He said he asked the boys where they wanted to have their awards dinner and they chose Hooters. His own children had a positive experience there at age 12, he said.

    Plans for the dinner, first reported in the Oregonian, were first outlined in a letter sent to parents by the school’s athletic director, J.P. Soulagnet.

    “I spoke with Randy Burbach this evening [Monday night] and asked him to move the event to a different venue,” Soulagnet said in the letter. “He was unyielding and emphatically said no for a number of reasons.”

    Soulagnet sided with many of the upset parents.

    “Some might say that this restaurant objectifies women. I would tend to agree,” Soulagnet said. “It is not a restaurant that I would feel good about my wife or daughter working at. I think it sends the wrong message to our young men and that saddens and worries me the most.”

    After Burbach's dismissal, he sent another letter to parents that said, "I'm disappointed on many different levels...the fact is that the team is the one that loses out. It has become an issue that is no longer about your boys."

    Meantime, Burbach said he will still go forward with plans for the awards dinner at Hooters, it just won't be sponsored by the school.

    I'm offended because the food's not that good.
