Among the issues found were administrators getting full-time salaries and state pensions at the same time, sisters working in the same department, and a boost in a football coach’s salary.

The News Journal reports the high school’s dean of students and football coach Bill Collick’s salary rose from $63,000 to $107,500 in 2012.  He reportedly earns an extra $7,500 to coach the football team.

Collick was collecting a full-time salary from the Cape Henlopen School District and a state pension.  State officials told Collick that he either needed to cut his salary to below $20,000 a year or suspend his pension.  Collick chose to suspend his pension.

If he chose to keep his pension, he would have received an over $40,000 pay cut from his job as the dean of students.  Instead, he received a pay raise of over $40,000 after suspending his pension, taking his salary into the six-figures.
