Ty Jones gets IHSAA top job

New executive director

Hagerman High School su-perintendent Ty Jones was named Wednesday, Jan. 22 as the new executive director of the Idaho High School Activi-ties Association (IHSAA), gov-erning body of Idaho high school athletics.
    Jones, 49, a Twin Falls High School graduate, takes his new position July 1. He replaces the retiring John Billetz, 62, former Gooding High School head football coach and administra-tor who has been IHSAA execu-tive director for eight years starting in 2006.
    The appointment of Jones means three of the past four IHSAA executive directors have come from the Magic Val-ley and southern Idaho area. Wendell High School graduate Dick Stickle ran the agency from 1974-1988. Caldwell’s Bill Young, who spent 26 years at Middleton and Vallivue high schools, preceded Billetz at the post from 1988-2006.
    After graduating from Boise State University, Jones began his education career as a teacher and coach at Twin Falls High in 1989. He served as teacher, coach and administra-tor at Gooding and Jerome be-fore becoming elementary school principal and superin-tendent at the Hagerman dis-trict in 2012.
    The IHSAA Board of Direc-tors’ interviewed three finalists for the position on Tuesday, Jan. 21. IHSAA board president Rich Bauscher announced Jones’ appointment at Wednes-day’s IHSAA board meeting in Boise.
