We all have different views and thoughts, we can all agree that in these desperate times everyone even the School system needs to think ahead and Implement ways to save money and use it in better ways.

how about doing away with maintenance personnel driving buses to school functions? Just make the coaches drive. The only time you should need a driver is if its farther than 250 miles away or so. our coaches have to act like they are the dallas cowboys and have to be chartered.

Coaches do drive

Let's see....Make coaches drive, they already do. How about make every extra-curricular sponsor drive for their functions. That would mean band, choir, UIL academics, Student Council, Cheerleaders, ETC. would have to drive. Now you might save a little money. A little money that would be wasted on something else. The true travesty is in all of the fluffy positions in the school district. Get rid of those, too. By the way, there aren't many coaching staffs in the state in any class with the number of coaches that Kermit has. Cut them out too.

My daughter was telling us about all the money we are wasting that no one talks about. I hear we are wasting so much $ on made up positions such as having a Math & Science "Specialist" that spends all his time at the fieldhouse! That is just one of many coaches that get a huge paycheck and do nothing. If u dont believe us just ask Grubbs, Williams, Gibson or Townsend what they teach then ask them how much they make! YOU WONT BELIEVE HOW BIG THEIR SALARIES ARE! I remember Glen Jones driving buses for free!

So all the coaches drive? Not A Fact! Most of our coaches aren't even certified to teach! Thats why the District had to go hire another teacher when one quit during the year!

EVERY sport and every function should have their own sponsors drive UNLESS its 200 or 250 miles or more. and yes waste of time positions that lujan created need to go. What about some of our maintenance trucks? iv seen atleast one or two of them that are brand new and fixed up like its a car show. Oh wait it is show since they cruise all day... some not all!! get rid of uncertified teachers. If you are going to pay someone make damn sure they are qualified.

I remember when you had to get your CDL to be hired as a coach or you were either working for free or not working at all... what happened to that? How come some of these coaches can work for Grubbs for 3-4 years and still not get a CDL? Some of them can not pass the physical to get a CDL? well then they need to place coaches in sports a little better then.. have one coach in every sport that DOES have a CDL.....

Isnt it ironic.?Here we are trying to get rid of these lazyass coaches and nobody will hire them.! I guess the other schools see right thru their ignorance,too bad our administration cant see it.! I guess Alpine and Horizion have smarter Administrators than Kermit does.

Word gets around very quickly in the education world. Especially in the Texas High School Coaching world!!!!!! The school board and administration is made up mostly of parents with Kids that play sports! WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU!! We need people who truly care about the kids and not just about their kid getting playing time or new turf and new equipment and jerseys that are not even needed EVERY year.

In the future, coaches should have to purchase they OWN corn-dogs when the team eats at sonic. No more store-bought air for footballs either.

That had 2 b the worse Sports Banquet n Kermit history. These coaches dont even care about our kids. Grubbs stop caring when his son graduated, why we extended his contract is beyond me. The rest of the coaches walk around pissed off because no one is stupid enough 2 hire them.
Hated it TOO

We get that feeling from these [email protected] coaches too. It was like they couldnt wait to be done last night. My daughter and her teammates refuse to even be in Athletics if these coaches remain in Kermit. They say they are tired of the coaches always being on the phone and some even showing up drunk(Townsend). Time for the School Board to take action against these slackers!

First of all, my mother was not trying to offend any parents or Booster Club members, she was talking about our [email protected] coaches. Secondly, these opinions are not just my families' this is how the majority of the athletes feel (high school and junior high). We are tired of these money hungry drunk coaches. School Board please get us some real coaches!

I'm sure the first few years Grubbs was in Kermit some of the players didn't like him, that's not unusal when a new coach takes over kids from another staff. Actually it's very unfortunate for those kids who don't buy into a new coaches program. In reality the athletes in Kermit think a lot of their coaches as the coaches do of the kids. I know this for a fact my son is in the program. Like any school there will always be players and parents who don't like coaches. I can hardly see how you think the coaches are money hungry. I saw in the paper where the new coach in Wink was getting paid $75,000 a year and I know Grubbs doesn't make near that much. We the people of Kermit ought to be embarassed that our coach makes less then the coach in Wink. I can't believe anyone would get on here and blast a banquet. It was nicely set up, awards were given out and kids were honored and recognized. The kids were dressed nicely and the coaches looked professional. The booster club is in charge of the banquet and did a great job!

You and your son need 2 wake up and smell the roses. Grubbs gets a salary close to 6 figures, he has not coached up to our abilities. Lets look at his staff. One coach shows up drunk to practice and school(BT). Another was caught driving drunk but Grubbs and Lujan swept it under the rug(JJG). One coachs' wife now a principal, had an affair with 3 students that again was swept away then given a promotion(KG). And yet another Lujans' grandbaby(JrW). And you still feel that he and his staff deserve their pay?

I'm not sure where you get your information. An athletic Director can't make more than a principal. The principal's in Kermit are far short of 6 figures. Salaries are public record all you have to do is call the school district and find out. I assure you it's less than the Wink A.D. I'm not sure what up to your abilities would be but a football program that has won well over 20 games the past three years is pretty good in my book. Not to mention what the other athletic programs have done. The paper shows several programs making it to the state level along with some individuals. As for your allegations of others you need to be careful, slander is a criminal offense. Why can't we just all state positive things and get along.

ur absolutly right mis informed. coaches driving a school bus to me is dangerous. a teacher/coach have stress and then having to drive is not safe for them kids PERIOD.teachers deserve more pay in this cators are resposible for our doctors, engineers etc , plus raising some of these kids that have no support at home and there is alot of these kids in kermit. they mention coach grubbs lol coach grubbs is one of the better hunman beings in this profession. they compare him always to coach jones who is also a good human being and good coach. many dont know that coach grubbs is 3-0 versus jones. if some of you are so worried about money or salaries of these coaches go to college, its a shame that some of these guys that work in the oil fields make more that a teacher/coach is that fair. after these guys spend 5 yrs or so to reach this profession and not get rewarded for it. wake up people geesh. if some of these citizens aint happy go see coach grubbs and draw him a play and show him how to block it too. im pretty sure he will listen to u. but im sure people who are constantly on here complaining dont know crap
