A protest last week to get a popular wrestling coach his job back worked.
On Monday the school district said Bud Glover will be returning next year as the head wrestling coach at Grand Junction High School.
Last week the school said they weren't going to bring Glover back.
When the wrestling team heard about the decision, they held a sit-in at the school. Glover was assistant coach for about 19 years until he took over as head coach last year.
In a statement released by the school district Glover says that he wants to thank everyone for their support.
