Wouldn't be surprised to hear some bribes being accepted. Still a shame because you know it's tough on the kids.

Southlake Carroll football coach Hal Wasson, who led his team to a 2011 state championship, has been placed on administrative leave while the district conducts a review of the football program, the district announced in a statement on Wednesday.

The review is being conducted by Southlake Carroll athletic director Darren Allman, assistant superintendents and the district's human resources department.

"Our review covers three main areas," the statement reads. "1. the culture of the football program as it compares to district expectations and the upholding of our core values; 2. our procedures as they relate to UIL rules; ande 3. ensuring employees' understanding and compliance with district policies, practices and guidelines."

Carroll ISD said it has been in the contact with the UIL.

Wasson, Allman, and school board president Sheri Mills didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

Parents at the school were sent an email about the investigation on Wednesday afternoon from superintendent David Faltys. The email consists mostly of the statement Carroll ISD released to media outlets but also asks parents not to comment.

"As we move forward, there will likely be rumors and misinformation circulating," the email read. "I wish that speculation and opinions wouldn't be shared without fact, but in this day and age we understand that is the nature of social media. I would ask you out of respect for all involved to refrain from comment during our review."

Wasson just finished his 11th season at Southlake Carroll, taking the team to a 10-4 record and the 6A regional finals. Carroll is 121-26 in Wasson's 11 years. He inherited the program in 2007 after Carroll won three state titles and head coach Todd Dodge left for North Texas.

Here is the information released by Carroll ISD:

Carroll ISD has been conducting an administrative review focused on several aspects of our Dragon football program. We have an outstanding history of excellence in this program but sometimes it is necessary for us to take a closer look at our operations and ensure that they are aligned with our core values and with the rules and regulations that go with high school athletics.

The review is being conducted by our Athletic Director, Assistant Superintendents and our Human Resources Department. Our priority will be taking care of kids and moving the program forward as we protect the tradition of Dragon athletics.

Our review covers three main areas:

the culture of the football program as it compares to district expectations and the upholding of our core values;
our procedures as they relate to UIL rules; and
ensuring employees' understanding and compliance with district policies, practices and guidelines.
At this time, we are working with the head coach of this program, as well as his staff, to identify any areas of concern that need to be addressed with the UIL, the School Board or administratively. Paid leave is standard procedure for this kind of review, which means our assistant coaches will continue to handle off-season football. At this point there have been no other administrative actions or decisions impacting staff or the program.

Carroll ISD takes this matter seriously and wants to be thorough in our review on behalf of our district, program and community. We have been in direct contact with the UIL to let them know of our ongoing review. Once completed, there will be a report of our findings shared with the UIL.

I'm geographically close and play some middle schools from their school district in tournaments etc. I'll let you guys know of anything I hear related directly to this. I can say that there was some concern about middle school athletes being ineligible and birth certificates being changed by a year or two for 50k. This was from a coach/ref from another neighboring district who plays them regularly in middle school games.

Or something major is going on with hazing or something along those lines.  Don't be to quick to judge.   Instead of jumping to conclusions why don't you wait for facts and details. 

Hogarusa:

On message boards, I prefer jumping to internet conclusions so lets play:

Is it:
1 hazing
2 sexual _____
3 bribes
4 physical/yelling abuse
5 parents complaining
6 racism

hogfaninmo:

NBC 5 Sports Director Newy Scruggs reports sources are saying there are concerns being raised about funds Wasson was receiving while coaching at football camps, and that though Wasson is on administrative leave, he will not return as Southlake Carroll's head coach.


DeltaBoy:

Sad to hear they are cutting off their nose to spite their face.

These type deals are usually about money or sex, but with the statements about culture and UIL being mentioned. I am guessing this is about skirting the rules around team activities but just a guess.

I can say from personal experience, when i moved to OKC, i was on the receiving end of racism more than i ever saw anywhere else in my life.

It happens to every race/gender/religion...ALL...and like i said, if you look for it, any person on this board can find it in their lives. First step to fixing it is turning the other check and try solving the problem instead of bitching about it.

Yeah i know you don't agree and you can give me another smite in an hour.

You can just make it up. That's what is going on in America. People who always see and yell racism are the most racist people in the world. They only see color.

Hahahahahahaha, so it's the people who were judged simply by the color of their skin who are the racist ones.  😁

Maybe but he took a his team who was supposed to be down this last year on a deep playoff run.

Folks down here are fudging on Practice limits and such all the time. And for having Camps tons of those schools do.

what's funny as hell in Texas is the large powerhouses who recruit, public or private, under the table or openly, bitch about IMG Academy in Florida recruiting their players away to IMG

Wait for Facts? This is Hogville and you want someone to wait for facts. I wouldnít hold my breath.

twistitup:

I believe there is some sort of Town Hall meeting tonight dealing w this issue.....does he keep his job or not?

DeltaBoy:

Nope he retired and they hired Todd Dodges Son Riley Dodge to be HC. I wish him all the best.

twistitup:

I'm hearing Steve Lineweaver will be a top assistant to Riley.....man, he brought back a winner. I didn't think Lineweaver would come out of retirement, but I guess he really cares about Carroll not falling flat on it's face

DeltaBoy:

I not heard anything so far but I bet someone will hire the former coach pretty soon.
