(AP) – Indiana High School Athletic Association Commissioner Bobby Cox says he will retire in August.
The 63-year-old Cox has served in his current role since replacing Blake Ress in February 2011.
Cox helped the governing body bring in more corporate sponsors and better technology while promoting better sportsmanship and stronger health initiatives for athletes.
He also embraced the Champions Together program, which worked with Special Olympics of Indiana to establish state tournaments for students with intellectual disabilities.
The IHSAA says it will begin the search for Cox’s replacement following next month’s executive committee meeting.
