Hobbs football coach Bruce Dollar resigned Tuesday morning.
  Hobbs football coach Bruce Dollar announced his resignation Tuesday morning effective immediately.
  Dollar went 10-22 in three seasons with Hobbs, leading the Eagles to their only playoff win since 1982. However, Hobbs has gone 3-14 over its last 17 games – spanning two seasons (Hobbs missed the playoffs both years).
  In short, Dollar told me either he was going to have to resign or was going to be asked to no longer coach the football program.
  Hobbs athletic director Greg Haston said the school was pleased with the early success, but feel like this is a good time to start fresh with a new coach.
