Paso Robles High School and head football coach Larry Grant have parted ways just days into the 2017 season. The announcement was made Wednesday morning.

“The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District (PRJUSD) and Paso Robles High School (PRHS) head varsity football coach, Larry Grant, have mutually agreed to part ways,” a press release states.

Offensive coordinator J.R. Reynolds, last year’s junior varsity head coach, has been named the interim head coach, according to the release.

The move comes nearly a year after longtime head coach Rich Schimke was fired mid-season following an incident involving a player.

Former NFL player and new Paso Robles High head football coach Larry Grant brought two family members with him to the field for the 2017 season.

Next season the Paso Robles High football team will be the first SLO County team to play its home games on artificial turf.
