Ex-Sahuaro coach appeals for job



Former Sahuaro High School baseball coach Mark Tselentis wants a judge to order the Tucson Unified School District to reinstate him.

Tselentis, through attorney Dan Cooper, filed an appeal in Pima County Superior Court after TUSD failed to respond to a claim filed in May.

TUSD is asking the court to dismiss the appeal.

The district fired Tselentis as Sahuaro baseball coach and Tucson Magnet High School assistant volleyball coach following allegations that baseball players and coaches misbehaved on an April 2003 trip to Las Vegas. He remains a physical education teacher at Sahuaro.

“My client is devastated,” Cooper wrote in a letter to TUSD. “He loves coaching. He loves kids.”

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
