Central looking for new football coach

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Central Bobcats are looking for a new head football coach.

Joe Hassell is out after three seasons.

Central athletics director J.D. Lambert said the team was informed of the decision on Thursday.

He called Hassell an outstanding teacher and person but said he wanted to "move in a different direction" with the football program.

Hassell was promoted to head coach at Central in 2011, taking over for long time head coach Joel Helton.

The Bobcats made the playoffs in 2012 but won just four games this season.

Lambert said the search for a head coach will likely wait until after the playoffs.
