Hallenbeck out at Yucaipa

Yucaipa football coach John Hallenbeck is out at coach of Yucaipa after two seasons, according to Hallenbeck. The coach did not go into details when I got a hold of him a couple of minutes ago, as he confirmed his departure and denied comment after that.

“There’s too much going on right now and I can’t say anything at this moment,” Hallenbeck said. “Maybe it’s something I’ll be willing to discuss later, but not now.”

Hallenbeck was 11-10 in two seasons with the Thunderbirds after taking over for Scott Pearne, advancing to the playoffs in 2008 and going 5-5 this past season. Yucaipa had a chance to make a fourth straight playoff appearance this fall, but fell to Carter 28-7 in the season finale.
