After four years of serving as head coach of the Liberty Christian varsity football team, Barton Hundley has been reassigned to other duties at the Argyle private school.
According to a letter written to Liberty Christian students, parents and faculty members on Dec. 4, athletic director Zack Vest made the announcement that Hundley would not be returning next season.
“The Liberty Christian School Administration Team has made a change in the direction of the football program,” Vest wrote. “As a result, Coach Barton Hundley will no longer serve as the head football coach.”
“Hundley is still on staff and will continue teaching here at Liberty along with his spring coaching assignment,” said Michelle Simms, Director of Admissions.
Vest wrote that Liberty Christian School will form a committee to begin searching for a new head coach for the 2018-19 school year in the near future.
Hundley accepted the LCS head coaching position in 2014 following the departure of Greg Price.
After playing college ball at Kansas State and being drafted by the Chicago Bears, Hundley went into coaching, eventually landing a spot as Defensive Backs coach for the Warriors under Price.
Liberty Christian finished 6-4 in the 2017 regular season, including a huge upset against Celina in Week 2, but lost in the opening round of the playoffs by score of 36-0 to Bishop Dunne.
This was a slight improvement over the 2016 campaign, when the Warriors went 5-5 and lost in the bi-district round as well.
Vest wrote that the Warriors program was grateful for his efforts.
“Liberty Christian School is greatly appreciative of the years of service Coach Hundley has served our young men,” Vest wrote.
