Assistant commissioner promoted to lead IHSAA

A longtime assistant commissioner of the Indiana High School Athletic Association has been named the organization's new
leader.

The IHSAA announced Friday that Bobby Cox would replace Blake Ress as commissioner in February when Ress retires after 10-1/2
years in the position.

The 53-year-old Cox has been an assistant commissioner since 2000. He previously was a teacher, coach and athletic director
in the Carmel school district for 21 years.

Cox calls high school sports the glue of Indiana's communities and says that needs to be celebrated.

Cox has overseen football, boys golf, boys and girls track and field and wrestling for the IHSAA.
