After three seasons, Harry Hubbard no longer is the head football coach at Blake High.

Hubbard said Yellow Jackets athletic director Jesse Salters and principal Jacqueline Haynes decided to go in another direction. Hubbard is coming off a 4-6 season at the Class 5A school in one of the area's most competitive districts, one that contains strong teams from Jesuit, Robinson and Lakewood. Among those victories was a 41-19 romp over rival Middleton, the first in seven years.

Last year, the Yellow Jackets went 5-5 but were forced to forfeit a game due to a player eligibility issue. In his first year, Hubbard's team went 1-9. Hubbard previously coached at Middleton, where he had guided the Tigers into the playoffs.

Hubbard said he still wants to coach football and plans to apply for the vacancy at Chamberlain.

"I would've stayed here but I guess it wasn't in God's plans," he said. "I still enjoy (coaching). I will be putting my name in the hat at Chamberlain and pray for the best."
