Harbin turns in resignation as coach of Franklin High School varsity football

Brian Harbin has resigned as varsity head football coach after four seasons at Franklin Community High School.

Harbin tendered his resignation to the school board on Monday. The school announced his departure Tuesday.

Franklin athletics director Kip Staggs said the search for a new coach has begun but no timetable has been set for a hire.

“We’ll take our due diligence and make sure we get the right coach,” Staggs said.

A former assistant coach at Center Grove, Harbin served one season as head coach at Franklin Central before coming to Franklin.

Harbin was 2-8 in his one season with the Flashes (2008) and was 13-28 during his four years with the Grizzly Cubs. His combined record is 15-36.

In his final season, Franklin was 4-7. The Class 5A Cubs lost seven of their final nine games but did earn a 22-19 first-round sectional win against Bloomington North. The following week, they lost 62-6 against eventual regional champion Center Grove.
