NCS names new assistant commissioner

With former assistant commissioner Gil Lemmon taking the place of Tom Ehrhorn as the new North Coast Section commissioner, the section needed to hire someone to take Gil’s place. A quick check on their web site today tells me that Bri Niemi is the new Assistant Commish for the 2008 season.

Niemi comes over from the Pac-10 Conference, where she was Assistant Commissioner for communications. She started with the Pac-10 in 2005 as Assistant Public Relations Director. She got promoted to Assistant Commissioner in 2006. Her bio also says she had a fair amount to do with the Pac-10’s internet operations, which I would think is certainly a positive in the ever-expanding online world of high school sports.
