David Flom has been with Eden Prairie as coach and teacher since 2006.

Eden Prairie coach David Flom found himself in familiar territory Monday night, hearing players' sneakers squeaking on the basketball court.

Flom was reinstated as boys basketball coach by the Eden Prairie school district Monday after being suspended Dec. 8 over a racial slur he read to players from a social media post.

An email sent to players, parents and alumni indicated Flom read the racial slur aloud during a classroom session with players and assistant coaches. The focus of the session was responsible use of social media.
