COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Colerain High School athletic director Craig Ulland will resign at the end of the school year in order to spend more time with his family.

“It has been an incredible experience over the last four years to be a part of Colerain High School, and I am very proud of what we accomplished," Ulland said in a statement Friday afternoon.

"State tournaments, GMC championships, milestones, and so much more. After 13 years of being in this role, or similar roles, it was time to step away and find more balance. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with my loved ones, and most importantly, being a father. The Colerain Cardinal community is a special place, and I want to wish our dedicated coaching staff and outstanding student-athletes the best of luck in the future.”

Ulland, who has been president of the GMC since July 2020, spent nine years as an assistant athletic director at Lakota East prior to Colerain.

Ulland's resignation at Colerain is effective July 31.

"Craig Ulland has done an outstanding job as our athletic director," Colerain principal Jack Fisher said in a statement.

"He has demonstrated a high level of professionalism and has certainly been an asset to CHS and the Colerain community. We wish Craig, his wife Kaitlyn and their son Oliver all the best. Craig will always be a part of the CHS family."

Colerain football coach Shawn Cutright said he enjoyed working with Ulland the past two years.

"He was one of the most honest and genuine people I have had the pleasure to know," Cutright said. "He will be missed. I wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavors."

Northwest Local School District will begin the search for a new athletic director immediately, according to the district.
