Court hearing concerning payments to former Ozen football coach postponed
A judge has postponed until Wednesday a hearing to determine if the Beaumont school district can resume payments to a football coach who resigned.
Keeath McGee resigned from Ozen High School, February 19th. The district entered into a separation agreement with McGee to continue paying him through June.
KFDM obtained a letter McGee wrote criticizing the district for the way it handled the matter saying he was pressured and that his wife, who had been a teacher in the district, was pressured to help students cheat on tests.
Last week Judge Mickey Shuffield granted an injunction preventing the district from continuing to pay McGee.
Attorney Mike Getz filed for the injunction on behalf of a taxpayer.
Getz says the district must hold a public hearing to explain why it wants to continue paying McGee.
Getz is calling the payments "hush money". The hearing has been reset for 9 a.m. Wednesday in Judge Shuffield's court.
