Loveland names Brian Conatser athletic director
The Loveland City School District is excited to announce Brian Conatser – a longtime Tiger – as the permanent district director of student athletics. Conatser, who has 12 years of experience growing Loveland student-athletes in his work as a varsity coach, served as the athletic director in an interim capacity during the 2017-18 school year following the February announcement that District Director of Student Athletics Julie Renner accepted a position outside education with FinalForms, a national athletic management solution company.
“Loveland High School is known in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference for our robust athletic program, and Mr. Conatser proved to Tiger Nation that he has what it takes to lead this program forward,” said Loveland High School Principal Peggy Johnson.
Conatser began serving the district in 2006 as a teacher at Loveland High School (LHS). During that time Conatser was a member of the varsity football coaching team, and worked as the LHS strength and conditioning coach. He transitioned from his teaching role to work as the LHS Innovative Instructional Coach during the 2015-16 school year, before joining the administrative team in the role of assistant director of student athletics in 2016. Conatser has a Bachelor’s of Education in Health Promotion from the University of Cincinnati, a Master’s of Education in Secondary Education from Xavier University, and a Master’s of Education in Educational Leadership from American College of Education.
“I love this district, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to grow our already outstanding athletic program for our students, our parents, our community, and our staff,” said Conatser. “It is a great time to be a Tiger!”
