THE CASE AS A FORM OF HARASSMENT. FORMER HEAD FOOTBALL COACH GOING PUBLIC TONIGHT TO CBS 11’S BILL JONES ABOUT HOW HIS LIFE CHANGED WHEN THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR CAME INTO HIS OFFICE. NEXT THING I KNOW I’M TURNING MY KEYS IN AND MY BADGE AND I VACATED THE PREMISES. I STAGGERED HOME AND WALKED AROUND THE YARD AND IT WAS KIND OF AN EMOTIONAL TIME. WHAT FOLLOWED WAS A 5 WEEK REVIEW THAT ENDED WITH A FULL BUY OUT OF THE $165,000 LEFT ON HALL WAS ON’S CONTRACT. WE MADE IT CLEAR WE WERE READY TO FIGHT. ATTORNEY BLAMES A STRANGE RELATIONSHIP WITH ATHLETIC DIRECTOR. DO YOU SENSE THERE WAS SORT OF A PERSONAL AGENDA AS FAR AS THIS GOES? ABSOLUTELY. I THINK THAT’S WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. WATSON WAS ACCUSED OF SUMMER CAMP VIOLATIONS. ALL OF THOSE CAMPS WERE BLESSED BY THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR. HE SIGNED OFF ON ALL OF THEM. AND PART OF THE CASE INCLUDED A DISCREDITED REPRIMAND HE WAS SERVED. THE PERSON THAT WROTE THAT REPRIMAND, WHAT I CAN TELL YOU IS THE NEXT MORNING REGRETTED WRITING IT AND BEGGED HALL TO TEAR IT UP AND THROW IT AWAY. THAT’S THE ONLY REPRIMAND HE EVER RECEIVED. AND HOW WAS THAT PRESENTED TO HIM. IT WAS PUT IN HIS MAILBOX AT 9:30 AT NIGHT. AND IT CAME FROM. THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR? YOU KNOW, HE CAME FROM SOME GREAT PROGRAMS. I’M NOT GOING TO THROW ANYBODY UNDER THE BUS TODAY. CBS 11 REACHED OUT TO CAROL ISD BUT THE INVITATION WAS DECLINED. SO I HAVE TO ASK YOU BECAUSE YOU LIVE HERE LONG ENOUGH THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN AS BUTTONED UP AS ANYBODY CAN IMAGINE AND INSTANTLY THINGS ARE ROTTING IN PARADISE. AND ABOUT AS SUCCESSFUL AS ANY PROGRAM AND APPARENTLY THAT HAS BEEN SO AND APPARENTLY IT’S BEEN GOING ON RIGHT NOW.
