La Mirada~Long time baseball coach Kim Brooks returned to his La Mirada High classroom today pending a further internal investigation into an incident involving him recently, Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District Assistant Superintendent Wayne Shannon told the La Mirada Blog.

Brooks was placed on administrative leave by the district over two weeks ago when a recording of a profanity-laced tirade directed at his players surfaced.

Shannon told the La Mirada Blog the district "anticipates completing its investigation by the end of next week."

Shannon said, “They have received preliminary findings that indicate it is appropriate to return Mr. Brooks to the classroom at this time.  As such, Mr. Brooks has been taken off paid leave and returned to his teaching assignment.”

Shannon said because the investigation is ongoing, the district cannot comment further at this time.

La Mirada Blog fan Angela Umeres (@angieumerus), one of his students tweeted, "Class felt so great with him back."

At this time, it is still pending if Brooks will be reinstated as head baseball coach or as the Athletic Director for the school.

La Mirada lost 8-0 to Aliso Niguel in the CIF-SS Division 2 Semifinal this past Tuesday with Jim Zurn coaching the team.
