Bishop Luers announced Wednesday the hiring of James Huth as its new athletic director.
Huth will replace Matt Lindsay, who was fired Sept. 16 for having a large number of what the diocese deemed inappropriate videos on his computer.

Huth is 1981 graduate of Bishop Luers and was most recently been the School Leader at Imagine MASTer Academy since 2007.
Jim Huth has resigned as the principal of Imagine MASTer Academy to pursue this unique opportunity with Luers High School, Imagine representative Jason Bryant wrote in an email. I wish Jim the very best as he has been a strong leader for Imagine.
