Gainesville High announced Monday that it has parted ways with boys basketball coach Chuck Graham. 

“Coach Graham was relieved on his coaching responsibilities at the conclusion of the basketball season,” Gainesville superintendent Jeremy Williams said. “We value his investment in our students as a mentor and he will continue to serve the community in his teaching role.”

This season, the Red Elephants posted an 14-11 mark, but failed to make the postseason for the second consecutive season. 

In early 2022, Graham was informed he would no longer be Gainesville’s coach, after going 5-18, but was eventually brought back March 7 of that year, due to a strong reaction of support from the community

Graham spent five seasons as boys head coach at Gainesville, most recently making the postseason in 2021 as a Class 7A program. 

His final record with the Red Elephants is 70-63.

Prior to becoming head coach at Gainesville, Graham served as assistant coach for five seasons. 

"God blessed me with the opportunity to coach at Gainesville High and help shape the future of so many players in our program," Graham said. "Gainesville will always mean so much to me. I am thankful for the staff and the community for giving me the chance. 

"The last 10 years will always be special to me."
