The Macomb School District has severed ties with the boy's head basketball coach who is accused of sexual abuse.
The Board of Education on February 20 approved a resignation agreement with Daniel Watson. Under the agreement, his resignation took effect December 19, 2011. He will be paid to cover the time period from mid-August to December 19.
Watson was placed on administrative leave in mid-August, just a few days after Illinois State Police announced his arrest.
Superintendent Alene Reuschel would not say how much money Watson will receive.
