Highlands Ranch head football coach Mark Robinson resigned the day before his team's first game after he moved a player's car off campus during a canine drug sniff operation.

According to the report of the incident by the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Robinson -- who was also an assistant principal -- received a text message from officer Ryan Wood at 9:32 a.m. Aug. 24 alerting him that drug-sniffing dogs would be at the school at 10 a.m. to check cars in the parking lot for drugs.

Shortly after the text, two school security officers observed Robinson driving a player's car away. Robinson told security he was taking the car to put gas in it, but when he returned the parking lot he did not 

have the vehicle. After the sniff operation was over, security alerted Wood that Robinson had moved the car from campus to in front of his house, which is across the street from the school.

At that time, a deputy took a K-9 unit and ran around the player’s car, yielding a positive hit. The player refused to allow the vehicle to be searched and told Wood that Robinson had taken his car to get some personal items.
