One of the most accomplished coaching careers in Chattanooga sports history came to a sudden end Friday morning when Robert High was told he no longer would be in charge of boys' basketball at Brainerd High School.

School principal Uras Agee informed High of his decision during a morning meeting.

"I was hurt, to be honest," High said. "Several months ago I had requested a meeting with the principal to explain my intention to coach one more year and then retire because I wanted them to have time to get a plan in place to find a new coach. I didn't get that meeting until today, and he wasn't interested in me staying for another season."

Calls to Agee for comment were not returned.
