John Hildebrand has stepped down after six years as Woodcreek High School's head football coach to spend more time with his family. No replacement has been named.
Hildebrand, 34, had a 22-41 overall record and 8-22 mark in the competitive Sierra Foothill League, including 2-8 and 0-5 this past season.
His most successful team was the 2008 squad that finished 6-6 overall and 3-2 in league, and it beat Oak Ridge 31-24 in the first round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division II playoffs. The Timberwolves then lost to eventual section and CIF State Bowl champion Grant 49-14.
Grizzly chooses Hawaii
Granite Bay senior JR Calton will be a preferred walk-on this fall as a long snapper at Hawaii.
"JR is a three-year varsity player for us and one of the best long snappers I've coached in 32 years," Granite Bay coach Ernie Cooper said.
Cooper also reported that defensive end Tyler Arneson will play for Pacific Lutheran in Tacoma, Wash. Both were first-team All-SFL selections for the CIF State Division I Bowl champions.
Also, Grizzlies All-State linebacker Beau Hershberger is expected to sign Wednesday with Nevada.
