Search under way to find next Falcon football coach
Hudson not offered renewal contract
District 49 human resources recently posted online the Falcon head football coaching position formerly held by Trevor Hudson, officially ending a tumultuous four-month period that included a three-game suspension for a recruiting violation and later an alleged statement of resignation at a parent-player meeting.
D49 public information officer Stephanie Wurtz confirmed Tuesday that Hudson was not offered a contract for the upcoming season and that previous comments about resigning were out of line.
“When his contract expired (after last season), there was nothing for him to resign from,” Wurtz said. “The district didn’t offer him a contract.”
On Feb. 6, D49 officially opened the search for a new coach when it placed the Falcon head football coaching job opening on its website.
In a Jan. 17 story in The Gazette, it was reported that Falcon athletic director Randy Hinson was aware of Hudson’s earlier statements but wouldn’t comment until he received an official letter of resignation.
Although Hinson received a letter last week, he remained tight-lipped about reasons that led to a contract renewal not being offered.
“We’ve received his letter, and it said he was not going to return,” Hinson said. “Other than that, I’ve been told not to comment.”
Hudson, whose teams went 14-8 in two seasons, expressed possible interest in two other 4A head coaching positions in the area -- at Liberty and Cheyenne Mountain -- and chose not to reopen any issues from the past.
“I wish Falcon the best in their search,” Hudson said.
