Pending approval by the school board, Bryant will join the district this summer. The School Board is scheduled to meet Thursday, July 7, when it is believed his employment is on the agenda for approval.

“At a professional and personal level, I could not be more excited to join the Loveland City School District,” said Bryant. “This is an incredible opportunity and I cannot wait to use the platform of the position to positively impact student-athletes, their families, and the entire Loveland School Community.” 

Bryant will be taking over as District Director of Student Athletics from Brian Conatser, who is moving to Loveland High School Assistant Principal after serving as AD for the last 4 years.

Bryant has served as Athletic Director and Assistant Principal at Lakota East High School since 2009 and has previously worked as a building assistant principal in both Ross Local and Northwest Local School Districts. He earned both his bachelor’s degree in education and master’s degree in education administration from the University of Cincinnati.

“As a Loveland resident and parent, Rich understands our Loveland athletics programs have a great tradition and bring tremendous value to the school experience for our students,” said Superintendent Mike Broadwater.  “We’re excited to have a great, experienced AD join the Loveland team.”
