I've lived in Dade county my entire life. Played football there during middle and high school (late 90's -2000). DCHS is usually not a good team. Normally .500 or less. About every 10 years or so they have a decent team and make short run into the state playoffs. I think they do have a state championship title from back in the 50's or early 60's. I cant recall exactly. Anyway, I don't expect alot to come from this hire. He maybe a great coach, but the talent pool he has to work with is shallow.
The way the school system works is when you retire from one state, you can go to another state and draw full pay without it effecting your retirement pension from the previous state. If anyone in the Chattanooga area remembers, Coach Tom Weathers (Red Bank HS) done the exact same thing when he retired from TN. He came to Dade and coached for a few years but didn't really accomplish much, at least not that i can recall. I see this hire as the same kind of play. Hopefully i'm wrong about it, but if nothing else it will amp up locals, get people in the bleachers, and raise school funds.

Probably just a double dipper deal. I've seen Teachers do the same thing, Put in 20 at Tenn schools, then move to Ga and put in another 20. Two pensions; plus SS. Tricky Dicky. Trenton won't be sending any prospects to UT. Nope.

Here in NC, the trick is to save up your sick leave until retirement and sell it back when you retire. It artificially bumps up your pay in your final year which is a nice kick in the formula for retirement pay. A relative did this. I wish her all the best, but, really, not sustainable.

N.C. is a tough state to teach in for financial reasons.

You cannot draw retirement from Georgia that is unless you teach for 30 years depending upon your age. You become vested after 10 years but if aren’t 65 you can’t draw it unless you have taught 30 years. The days of retiring from one state and going to another are just about over. I can only speak for Georgia but many counties won’t hire retired teachers anymore. It is too expensive. I realize football coaches are a completely different animal

Fake news - you can draw retirement after your vested without teaching the full 30 years. The retirement is discounted however based on age and years of service.
Thank You. I have a classmate who did exactly what I described; I don't post stuff with good info. She gets a check from Tenn & Ga. AND She's not old enough to put in 30 x2.

You cannot teach for 10 years and then start drawing your retirement unless you are a certain age. Just because you are vested doesn’t mean you can automatically start drawing from it at any age. That is nonsense and you do not draw full retirement until you have taught for 30 years. You don’t know what you are talking about

The only way that would be possible is to retire in Tennessee which is 25 years and teach 10 in Georgia. You cannot start drawing from a pension system unless you are a certain age depending upon the state which is generally around 60 or have taught for the full term which is generally 25-30 years. I have been teaching 15 years. I cannot retire tomorrow and start drawing from my pension. I am not old enough for starters and I haven’t taught 30 years. I don’t care what your friends are telling you it is nonsense unless they are around 60ish. Even if I were to teach 25 years in Georgia, I still couldn’t draw on it until I reach eligible age because I didn’t become fully vested by teaching my full 30 years

She is 60ish. Landscape.
Then it’s possible but people have the wrong impression about teacher retirement. If I teach 30 years with a specialist in education, I will max out at around 65k. I will only draw 60% of that salary minus insurance and taxes which will translate to around 2k a month. It isn’t bad considering I would only be in my mid 50’s but you couldn’t support a family on that.
