CONCORD, N.C. -- Sources inside Cox Mill High School tell NBC Charlotte that the suspension has been lifted for the two basketball coaches following the controversy of a video uploaded to YouTube after a big win for the team.

Last Tuesday, the Cox Mill High School boys basketball team celebrated a big win against Concord by recording a "Harlem Shake" video in the locker room. The video was uploaded to YouTube.

A parent saw the video and complained to administration. On Saturday, at a walk-through with the basketball team, coaches Brad Hinson and Jody Barbee announced to the team they'd been suspended for the team's first playoff game, ever.

On Sunday, NBC Charlotte caught word of the controversy, and WCNC Sports Director Chris Clark posted the recorded "Harlem Shake" video to both his Facebook page and the NBC Charlotte Facebook page.

Now, several sources within the school tell Chris Clark that the coaches will be on the sidelines leading the team in their first playoff game in school history on Monday night-- and NBC Charlotte will be there.

The video has since been removed from YouTube, but NBC Charlotte has an exclusive copy. Press the Play button on the player above to watch the video that sparked the controversy.
