Issaquah High School football coach Chris Bennett was informed late last month that he would not be retained for next season.
Coaches work off year-to-year contracts. Bennett said he was taken by surprise when informed of the decision.
“To be honest, I was just told that my contract was not going to be renewed and when asked why, I wasn’t given a reason,” said Bennett, who compiled a 44-23 record in six seasons, along with an appearance in the 2008 state-title game.
