N.C. Central football coach Henry Frazier has been reinstated to his job after being suspended for his role in a domestic confrontation with his wife.
Frazier, who is in his second season with the Eagles, was restored to his position on Monday after resolution of legal matters.
“Coach Frazier is remorseful for the distraction to the university,” NCCU Chancellor Charlie Nelms said in a statement. “North Carolina Central University stands on century-old values and high standards that we expect and require from all members of our community. These core principles include mutual respect and the absence of violence in resolving conflict.”
Frazier was charged with assault in May after Morrisville Police found evidence of a confrontation between the couple. He was released from the Wake County Jail on $1,500 bond and given a June 22 court date.
“As coach Frazier returns to lead the NCCU football program, I have full confidence that he has learned from this unfortunate situation and is working through the healing process with his family,” NCCU Athletics Director Ingrid Wicker-McCree said. “The Frazier family has the full support of their NCCU family. The leadership team within our division understands that responsibility, accountability and commitment to our students and the university are critical.”
