A year after being fired by OHSAA, Jerry Snodgrass files civil suit

Jerry Snodgrass speaks at a news conference on March 19, 2020, four months before he was fired as executive director for the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

Jerry Snodgrass, who was fired in July 2020 as executive director of the Ohio High School Athletic Association, is suing his former employer for breach of contract.

In a lawsuit filed in Franklin County Common Pleas Court, Snodgrass alleges that OSHAA terminated his three-year contract nearly 13 months before its expiration date "without a majority vote of its board members... and outside of a board meeting."

The lawsuit also asserts that OSHAA "did not place Mr. Snodgrass on a performance improvement plan at any time prior to his termination.... and did not provide any notice of any kind to Mr. Snodgrass that his work performance was lacking or unacceptable for any reason."

OHSAA officials declined to comment on the lawsuit and its allegations.

"We are not able to comment on pending litigation," spokesman Tim Stried said.
