Mariemont football coach moves up
BY DAVE SCHUTTE
Tom Crosby, Mariemont's football coach the past 21 years, will take over as school principal in June, leaving behind his coaching career.
This is a new and exciting challenge, Crosby said. I've been at the school a long time and feel a passion for it. I want to be its leader.
During Crosby's tenure as head coach, the Warriors amassed a 159-62-1 record, reaching the 1995 Division V state championship game, losing to Lisbon Anderson, 34-31, in double overtime.
Crosby takes over for Dr. Gerald Houghton, who recently turned in his resignation.
Crosby served as Mariemont's athletic director until accepting an assistant principal position five years ago.
One of Cincinnati's most respected football coaches, Crosby has served as President of the Southwestern Ohio Football Coaches Association.
