“Brian comes to us with great school administration experience, leading a wide range of student activities, including directing an athletic program,” said John Marshall ‘86, principal. “He has come to understand and embrace CJ’s sense of family spirit, the importance of collaboration throughout the school community, and the swell of energy surrounding the opening of Roger Glass Stadium and the outdoor practice field in August.”

Originally from Bucyrus, Reinhart graduated from The Ohio State University in 1996, earned a Master of Theological Studies in 2005, and is currently completing his Master of Educational Leadership degree.

"It is an exciting time to be a part of athletics at CJ as we look to build upon the wonderful traditions and foundations that have been established over the years,” said Reinhart. “I look forward to working hard with all members of the community. Together, we will bring out the best of our student-athletes, coaches, and each other.

“Athletics is an important part the student experience at CJ as we continue to form young people in the traditions of the Marianists and Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur,” Reinhart continued. “Together we can continue to move CJ athletics forward and be a leader in the classroom and community as well as on the field, court, track, water, mat, lanes and course.”
