BREAKING NEWS: Crittenden not rehired by Hulbert

Mitchell Crittenden will not be retained as Hulbert's head football coach in 2013, the Hulbert school board decided at Monday night's monthly meeting.

Crittenden, 52, took over prior to the 2011 season and went 7-12 overall and 4-8 in district play during his two-year tenure in charge of the Riders. Crittenden led Hulbert to the playoffs in 2011, where the Riders lost in the first round to the eventual state runner-up, Woodland.

Already a week into spring practice, Crittenden was unaware of his job status until early Tuesday morning. Crittenden's wife, Tisha, was also relieved of her duties as a middle school math teacher.

"It's kind of tough right now," Crittenden said. "I'm still a little in shock right now."

Marilyn DeWoody, Hulbert's superintendent, was unavailable for comment on Tuesday morning. The Daily Press is still seeking comment from Hulbert officials.
