Broomfield Police opened an investigation into Eagles football coach and physical education teacher Blair Hubbard on Dec. 15 regarding “accusations of inappropriate behavior involving several Broomfield High School students.”
According to an email sent to the Broomfield Enterprise by BPD public information officer Rachel Haslett, “detectives conducted a thorough investigation and found Hubbard did not engage in any criminal behavior.” The department said it found no criminal wrongdoing and has since closed the investigation.
The police department added that the Boulder Valley School District is still in the process of conducting its own investigation into the matter.
Broomfield High School sent an email to parents Wednesday that Hubbard was placed on administrative leave pending an unnamed investigation.
The email sent by principal Ginger Ramsey, reads:
“Dear Broomfield High School Families and Staff,
I am reaching out to you this afternoon to let you know about some information that will be in the news.
Broomfield High School physical education teacher and head football coach Blair Hubbard has been placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of an ongoing investigation. In recent days we notified Hubbard’s classes and team of his absence.
While there is no further information we can share at this time, because it is a personnel matter, I want everyone to know that we believe in conducting a thorough investigation and providing due process for those involved. As a result, we ask for your patience and understanding as this work continues.
If anyone has any information they would like to share with investigators, please connect with me.”
Last month, Hubbard led his football program to a Class 4A state championship, the school’s first since 1984. He has been at the helm of the program since 2016.
Broomfield athletic director Steve Shelton forwarded any additional comment to Boulder Valley School District Chief Administration Officer Randy Barber, citing a personnel issue. Barber was sent an email by BoCoPreps Wednesday evening and he offered no additional comment, though he confirmed Hubbard was first placed on administrative leave on Dec. 15.
