ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – The RCTC Yellowjackets and Head Football Coach Derrick Hintz have mutually agreed to part ways.

Hintz spent the last 19 years as a member of the program, including five as head coach. Hintz went 21-2 in his first tenure at the helm of the ‘Jackets (2011-2012). He also guided RCTC to the MCAC playoffs in two of the last three seasons (2018-2021) in his second stint as head coach. Hintz finishes with a 32-15 record as Head Coach in Rochester.

In a statement, RCTC Athletic Director Mike Lester said, “I want to thank Coach Hintz for his commitment to the college, our department, and the young men in this program. He is and always will be passionate about RCTC and its football program, and as he says, ‘once a Yellowjacket, always a Yellowjacket.’”

The junior college says the search for its new head coach will begin immediately.
