TC Central AD to leave for MHSAA

TRAVERSE CITY — Cody Inglis called it "an opportunity of a lifetime."

The Traverse City Central athletic director will be leaving his position in January to become an assistant director with the Michigan High School Athletic Association. Inglis will serve as director of hockey, cross country, golf, and bowling. He will also assist with skiing and track.

"It's exciting, fun, bittersweet," he said. "It's everything. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it."

Inglis was notified just before the Thanksgiving holiday that he had been selected from a pool of more than 100 candidates to fill a vacancy created by the pending retirement of Randy Allen. He will be one of seven assistant directors working under executive director John "Jack" Roberts.

"I didn't envision myself leaving Traverse City Central for another high school," said Inglis, who was hired in February of 2008 as athletic director and assistant principal at the high school. "It's a great school, a great place for kids. We have a wonderful athletic program with a great sense of tradition and prestige. I wanted to continue to build on that. But an opportunity like this doesn't come around very often.

"And the great thing about this job is that I'll be involved in sports that I have a lot of experience in. It was like it was meant to be."

Inglis was instrumental in the creation of the Traverse City Bay Reps hockey team, a co-operative headed by St. Francis that’s now been in existence 15 seasons. He later served as an assistant coach. He also coached cross country and track at Suttons Bay and was named the Division 4 girls cross country Coach of the Year in 2002 after leading his team to a runner-up finish at the state finals. Prior to his arrival at Central, Inglis served 11 years as athletic director at Suttons Bay.
