COLUMBUS — Former Findlay High School coach and athletic director Jerry Snodgrass will be assuming his duties as executive director of the Ohio High School Athletic Association earlier than planned.
In January, Dr. Dan Ross, who had served as OHSAA Executive Director since 2004, announced he would remain in that position through Sept. 15. On May 4, the Board of Directors announced that Snodgrass would be the OHSAA’s next top administrator and assume that post in mid-September.
With Ross undergoing successful heart transplant surgery last month, the OHSAA Board of Directors opted to move up the installation of Snodgrass into his new post as leader of the OHSAA.
Snodgrass, an Upper Sandusky native, is the OHSAA’s 10th leader in the organization’s 111-year history. He has been an OHSAA administrator for the last 10 years.
Ross led the OHSAA for 14 years and hired Snodgrass as Assistant Commissioner in 2008. Ross worked in education as a teacher, administrator and official since 1971, spanning a career of 48 years.
