Guyer linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator Casey Hubble will be named the new head coach at Breckenridge, pending school board approval on Friday night.
Hubble has been at Guyer since 2005 — part of the charter coaching staff at Guyer after stops at Jacksboro, Dublin and New Caney. The 38-year-old has helped turn Guyer’s run defense into one of the best in the area, if not the state.
Hubble is the second Guyer assistant to get a head coaching job this week, joining longtime running backs coach/special teams coordinator Oschlor Flemming, who accepted an offer to become the head coach at Fort Bend Dulles. Both will be first-time head coaches. Breckenridge will play in District 4-3A DI in the next two-year realignment, where it will be a district foe of Ponder.
Hubble will replace Steve Freeman, who was the head coach at Brownwood and Guyer head coach’s John Walsh’s boss before Walsh took the Guyer job when the school opened. Freeman has been around the Guyer program throughout its existence, and his familiarity with the Guyer program and Hubble certainly could have had some bearing with Hubble’s hiring.
Look for more on this in Saturday’s edition of the Denton Record-Chronicle with comments from Hubble after the hiring is approved by the board.
