PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- A Portland, Ore.-area middle school football coach who was fired for planning an awards party at a Hooters restaurant says he's going ahead with the event without school backing.

And Hooters says it will pick up the bill Saturday and make a donation to the Corbett Middle School boosters club.

The district's athletic director fired Randall Burbach this week and withdrew its support for an event at Hooters, where waitresses wear shorts and tight shirts.

The first-year volunteer coach refused to move the after-season party to another location because Hooters is where the boys wanted to go and he believes it's a family restaurant.

KGW reports the Jantzen Beach Hooters is picking up the tab and donating $1,000 plus 20 percent of Saturday sales to the school's boosters club.
