Athletic director named at Wayne Memorial High School

Jason Malloy has been named as the new athletic director at Wayne Memorial High School.
It is somewhat of a homecoming for the 39-year-old educator, whose parents lived in  Wayne.
A graduate of Robichaud High School in Inkster, he was a four-year varsity football starter and as a senior was team MVP. He was named to the All-Area, All-Metro and All Conference teams during his high school football career during which he set several records which still stand today. He also played basketball during his high school tenure.

He attended Western Michigan University on a football scholarship where he was a two-year starter and a scholar-athlete award winner.
Malloy has several years experience coaching young athletes. He was formerly the athletic director at Robichaud High School where he also served as the head football coach. He also coached in various capacities at Ypsilanti Lincoln High School; Ann Arbor Pioneer High School; Southfield High School, Concordia University and Wayne State University and has a record of innovative and successful athletic programs.
Malloy earned his bachelor's degree majoring in elementary education at Western with minor fields of study including math, science and physical education. He also holds a masters degree in sports administration. He has been a fifth-grade classroom teacher along with his coaching experience.
Malloy will replace former Athletic Director Greg Ambrose at the high school.
He and his wife, Ornella, are the parents of two daughters, Ariana, 11, and Jada, 9.
