The Reynoldsburg Board of Education agreed July 21 to hire Clint Fetty as athletics coordinator at the high school.

Human resource director Sonia Postema said Fetty will help fill a void left when former athletics director Dave Lewis was let go last spring as a part of the district's reduction-in-force process.

She said Fetty is not replacing Lewis. As athletics coordinator, he will have fewer responsibilities than a director would normally have, thus allowing the district to save money.

Fetty's contract is effective Aug. 1 and ends July 31, 2010. His annual salary is $58,000 as opposed to Lewis' annual base salary which was $89,000.

Superintendent Steve Dackin said high school principal Ed Johnson will oversee the other duties that had been assigned to Lewis.
