Police investigation underway into ‘financial issues’ with Mt. Carmel H.S. boys’ basketball
MT. CARMEL, Ill. (WFIE) - Mt. Carmel Police tell us there is an ongoing investigation into financial issues with the Mt. Carmel High School boys’ basketball team.
That was their response when we asked about former coach Tyler Buss.
Police aren’t able to say anything more.
Wabash CUSD #348 Superintendent Dr. Chuck Bleyer confirms Buss resigned before the start of the school year to the coaching position and also to principal at Mount Carmel Elementary School.
He says his resignation letter did not give a reason.
Dr. Bleyer says he’s not able to comment on the investigation.
He says they expect to have a new coach hired next week.
As for the principal job, Dr. Bleyer says it won’t be filled this year because they want time to conduct a proper search for next school year.
He says they are managing the position in house with various people.
We’ve attempted to make contact with Buss, but haven’t been able to get through.
