HOWARD — The News has learned that Calvin Hatfield is stepping down as head football coach at East Knox High School.

Hatfield compiled a 12-28 record in four seasons as the Bulldogs’ coach. The team’s best season came in 2012, when East Knox finished 5-5.

“I thought it was the right time,” said Hatfield. “Hopefully, this will be a good step for the football program as well.”

The search for a new coach is underway. There is no exact timetable for having a new coach in place, but East Knox activities director Derick Busenburg told the News he would like to have someone in place as soon as possible.

“Depending on the number and the quality of candidates, I’d like to have somebody in place by the end of January,” said Busenburg.
