The district report filed to the school board also indicated that the football program mixed public and private funds through the football booster club, Gentry said.

Wong is best known for leading Timpview to four consecutive football state championships between 2005 and 2009, as well as holding the record for the longest winning streak in state history.

The audit first came to the school’s attention in December, and hundreds of Timpview football supporters came to a school board meeting over rumors that Wong’s job might be at risk.

Several parents and coaches in attendance swore retribution in November when four school board members will be up for re-election.

"They’ve forgotten they serve us, that they have stewardship of our children," assistant coach Ricky Frank said.

"We’re going to do what we can do to make sure we get four new board members."
