Hastings notified PLHS Principal Kelly Lowry of his decision Wednesday morning.
Hastings is only the third head football coach since 1946 at the school arriving 26 years ago, taking the head coach job from legendary Bennie Edens 22 years ago. Hastings guided his teams to four CIF football championship games and collected six league titles.
"We will begin our search for the next head football coach at Point Loma immediately," said Lowry. "I hope we can find another individual who can carry on that tradition and mentor young student-athletes as they become productive citizens."
