Reindel out

as Bath’s coach

BATH TOWNSHIP — Bath High School Athletic Director Kristen Holt has announced that varsity head coach Ryan Reindel will not be renewed for the 2023 season.

“It has been a great honor to serve as head coach for the past four years and as an assistant for nine years at the school I grew up in,” Reindel posted on his Twitter account. “I am proud of the things we accomplished the past four years. Navigating the challenges of the Covid season, returning the program to a .500 regular season and winning a playoff game for the first time since 2003. We have also brought great strength and pride back to the Bath community.”

Reindel took over at Bath in 2019 and went 10-29 overall and 8-25 in the Western Buckeye League. In 2020, the Wildcats qualified for the Division V playoffs, defeating Swanton 37-0 in the first round before falling 21-3 to West Salem Northwestern in their next game. His 2021 team went 5-6 and lost 14-3 in the first round to Liberty-Benton.

This past season, Bath went 0-10.

“We knew with 15 seniors graduating and with the loss of some critical staff last year, this was going to be a challenging season,” Reindel said. “I will always believe that coaching this year for the future was the right decision for my players and for the Bath football program.”
