Heck, Abron made PP $38k for making it to the championship game at Jerry World. They should have used a few of those dollars to keep him around a little longer. IMO

No school makes money in the playoffs. The transportation, lodging, and meal costs take all of that.

In football playoffs schools can & will make money...in other playoff formats you are correct

If we matched Mexia that would’ve been gone quick. They did remodel the Dairy Queen but it didn’t increase our tax base that much. Every little bit helps though.

Definitely new territory for us. We had 3 coaches in 24 seasons. With whoever the new guy is, it’ll make 3 coaches in 6 seasons next year. This group of seniors coming up will have had 3 coaches in their 4 years of high school. Never has happened before. 

The constant is Kumrow..... inspite of all the coaching changes the kids continue to win!

He’s kept us together more than once. I dread the day he retires. People will look back and realize how lucky we were to have had him for over 4 decades.

What proof do you have that Pewitt doesn't pay its assistant coaches as good as other similar schools in the area?  Just cause you think it doesn't make it so.  Got anything besides hearsay and rumors to back that up?

"In comparison with neighboring districts, Hughes Springs ISD teachers get paid higher than the average teacher pay in Region 8 ($42,217). Daingerfield ISD pays the highest among the neighboring districts at an average of $45,499. Pewitt CISD pays the lowest among neighboring districts at an average of $43,038."  Source: Texas FOIA Salary Data

Found this on Hughes Springs website when looking for their salary schedule to compare. Guess they did my research for me. 

 Stipends are either lower than other schools or not large enough to make up the difference. Source: Actual Coaches that have left.

Could that be because they have more experienced teachers, which would bump their pay per teacher up? Aren’t teachers paid based on years of experience? Also those two other schools may be rock throwing distance from us, but they both have a massive tax base that we don’t have. We do what we can.

Hit the nail on the head with the more experienced teachers. Its an average.

Pewitt is a great school district as far as kids and teachers are concerned, its the school board who decided to get rid of

Coach Kumrow when he had a down season a few years ago because of injuries.  He would be a great choice to lead the

program again.

So the OC has been there for decades what about the DC?  Abron being a defensive guy did he have a DC? Would that dude have a chance to take over if they didn't want Kumrow back at the top?

It could be. You would know that more than me. Is PP struggling to hire/keep experienced teachers? Schools have a base starting salary and will increase salary each year of experience. The amount that it increases by is per school. Maybe its from experience maybe not. PP staff would have to be considerably younger than every other school in the area to bring the average down that much. Probably a little of both low pay and young teachers. To say its just youth with nothing backing that up (Shout out to @PewittPride) sounds like a cop out.

Once again I get the tax base problem NB. PewittPride just asked for evidence to my rumors. I'm not saying there is anything PP can do about the problem just that there is one and its going to affect coaches.

DC is a young guy that has potential - Would be worth a shot in my opinion as long as Kumrow is there to help mentor him!

Dementia is a very bad thing. I'm sorry you deal with that, Muley. You're a day late and a dollar short on this one, lol. 😂

There's already a thread on this. 😉

He had a DC in name only. Abron made all defensive calls.
