Joe Cutler has been named girls track and field coach at Upper Arlington High School.

Cutler, who had been the coach at Hastings Middle School is replacing Dan Rohrs. The move is still pending board approval.

Rohrs resigned in June after nine seasons with the team.

In addition to being the track coach at Hastings, Cutler has been an assistant coach with UA's football team.

"I think his strongest attribute is that he's a very kid-centered guy," athletics director Chris Potts said. "It's not uncommon to see kids from Hastings come up and talk to him before a high school football game. He just has a great relationship with the kids.

"Upper Arlington's girls track program has always been well respected and hopefully he can continue to build the program."
