SEATTLE (AP) - A school district in western Washington is considering a two-year ban for its celebrated football coach after a report pointed to possible misconduct.

The Seattle Times reports (http://bit.ly/1TKMgVd ) that the Bellevue School District booster club recently said it paid Bellevue High head football coach Butch Goncharoff $60,000 per year. State rules require such payments to be approved by the school board, but a recent report from the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association says that never happened at Bellevue.

The booster club argues that the payments are acceptable because they were for non-coaching activities.

The school board said Tuesday that any coach found to have accepted money in violation of board policies should be ineligible to renew their contract for two years.

Goncharaoff told KING-TV that the investigation doesn’t make any sense.
