FARGO — A Fargo South coach was fired earlier this week after the school district said he had inappropriate communications with students on social media.

Fabrice Nolen, an assistant football coach and freshman boys basketball coach, was released from his employment at South on Monday due to “inappropriate communications with students via a social media platform,” Fargo Public Schools spokesperson AnnMarie Campbell said in an email.

No criminal charges had been filed as of Wednesday evening.

While Nolen is not listed as a Bruins boys basketball coach on the North Dakota High School Activities Association website, he is listed as a freshman coach on the team's website .
