With the Carroll superintendent already negotiating a buyout, the fate of head football coach Hal Wasson could be determined Monday when the school board meets in regular session.
Scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Administration Center, the agenda lists the head football coach in executive session and "Consideration and Possible Action on Employment, Evaluation, Duties and Responsibilities of High School Head Football Coach," in open session.
Wasson has been on paid administrative leave since Jan. 24 when superintendent David Faltys announced a review of the football program. Wasson, 61, has a contract through the 2018-19 school year. A Star-Telegram story this past fall listed his salary at $115,126.
The review of Wasson's program was conducted by Carroll athletic director Darren Allman, assistant superintendents and the human resources department.
Never miss a local story.
The review, which the Star-Telegram obtained through an Open Records request, was also sent to the UIL — the state’s governing body for public school extra-curricular activities..
The report found:
— The head coach held two football summer team camps within the boundaries of the school district. Only one is allowed by the UIL, and students were solicited to attend both camps.
— A sixth-grade football camp for Carroll students was held at the high school on dates prohibited by the UIL, and Carroll football coaches were paid to conduct the camp.
— Carroll football coaches held camps in the Carroll attendance zone that were attended by students who play on the Carroll football teams, which is a UIL violation.
— Carroll football coaches instructed athletes in football specific drills outside of the school day during the off-season, a UIL violation.
— Football sub-varsity athletes, on game days for other sports, were required to go through off-season football workouts, a UIL violation.
— Coaches, who were under contract with other districts, were working with members of the Dragon football team before they officially joined the Carroll program, a UIL violation.
On each of the findings, the report includes corrective actions being taken by the district. These include annual audits of all camps by the athletic director, and education provided to players, parents, staff and coaches on UIL rules and guidelines.
The UIL has yet to comment on the report.
Wasson is 121-25 with an .829 winning percentage in his 11 seasons at Carroll, including a state championship in 2011. The Dragons finished 10-4 in 2017 and advanced to the Class 6A Division II state quarterfinals before falling to Waco Midway, 42-28.
