Quincy coach Wallace suspended for a year IHSA cites undue influence of tranfer student
Quincy High School boys basketball coach Loren Wallace has been suspended from coaching for one year for what the Illinois High School Association cited as undue influence in the transfer of Brooks Allen from Pittsfield to Quincy at the start of the school year.
Reached at his home on Wednesday, Wallace denied the allegations and said he would appeal the suspension "as soon as possible."
"Right now, I can't say a lot, but it's not what it seems," he said."It's not what it seems and it's not what's been published.There was no recruiting whatsoever."
The 58-year old Wallace signed a five-year contract in 2000 with a stipulation that he can be dismissed if the basketball program is found in violation of IHSA rules.
The IHSA requested more information but did not receive a reply until November, which some observers saw as an effort by school officials to avoid influencing the Nov. 5 election in which Wallace was defeated in his bid for Adams County clerk.
Among the findings from the IHSA:
Around Aug. 15, Wallace received a phone call from Rich Allen, father of Brooks Allen, to arrange a meeting with Wallace in Wallace's home.Around Aug. 15, Wallace received a phone call from Rich Allen, father of Brooks Allen, to arrange a meeting with Wallace in Wallace's home.
Wallace met with the family on Aug. 19, when he reportedly told the family that their son would have as much chance as anyone to make the team.
At no time did Wallace direct the family to the administration at Quincy.The IHSA said Wallace had been previously directed by school administrators not to meet with potential players or families of students who were not enrolled in the district.
"We're going to be talking to the lawyers and putting together an appeal, and we'd like for it to be as soon as possible," Wallace said."This is not what it seems."
It's the second time in the past 18 months that Wallace has been under IHSA scrutiny.
In 2001, an investigation concerning allegations of the recruitment of foreign athletes was part of a seven-part series in the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News in which Wallace and former Quincy player Kristjan Makke were linked to an Estonian sports agent.
Wallace, one of the top coaches in Illinois history, was beginning his 33rd season as a coach and his 13th season at Quincy with a career record of 674-193.That ties him for 13th on the all-time career wins list.He is 255-83 at Quincy.
Prior to coming to Quincy at the start of the 1990-91 season, Wallace coached at Nokomis, Lincoln and Bloomington.
