Parents Question Unit 5 School Board Over Football Coach's Resignation
Parents at Normal West High School are asking the Unit 5 School Board for answers, after the school's head football coach unexpectedly resigned last month. Darren Hess has been with the program 15 seasons. When he resigned in December, he told the public he wanted to spend more time with his family. Many suspect he was forced to resign, after emails became public in which the administration was questioning how assistant coaches were paid. Superintendent Dr. Mark Daniel says the IHSA is reviewing the payments.
