WARREN HIGH COULD FACE PENALTIES FOR BOOSTER CLUB’S $22,500 PAYMENTS TO FOOTBALL COACHES

SCOTT COBOS / DOWNEY PATRIOT

DOWNEY – CIF bylaws may have been broken and penalties could be levied by CIF on Warren High School’s football program after former head coach Chris Benadom and his staff received possibly illegal stipends during the 2009 season.

During his second year as head coach, Benadom and his staff may have broken CIF Bylaw No. 507 of CIF’s State Constitution by accepting stipends from Warren’s recently disbanded booster club.

Checks were made out to Benadom and 12 others on his coaching staff. They were paid a total of $22,500. CIF Bylaw No. 507 states that a coach shall not be reimbursed for coaching services from any source other than the school funds without the approval of the school’s governing board, or in this case the Downey Unified School District board of education, nor be subject to any bonus arrangement dependent upon the success of the school’s team.
