Cyril Crutchfield will not be retained as football coach at St. Augustine High School, according to a report by SportsNola.com.
Crutchfield spent the past three seasons as head coach of the Purple Knights, compiling a 22-12 record.
Crutchfield couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday.
St. Aug finished 4-6 this season (1-4 in District 9-5A, the Catholic League) after going 9-2 last season and winning the Catholic League title. The 2013 squad reached the semifinals of the Division I playoffs.
A source close to the school told SportsNola.com that Crutchfield was told by the school’s administration that his contract will not be renewed. Terms of the separation have yet to be worked out, the source said.
St. Augustine President Oyd J. Craddock said Tuesday that no decision has been made on Crutchfield’s future at the school.
“The principal (Sean Goodman) makes that decision, and I have input (as president),” Craddock said. “All I can tell you is that nothing has been done at this time.”
Crutchfield was hired in 2012 to replace David Johnson, who accepted a job as an assistant coach at Tulane.
