Benjamin Logan’s girls basketball team will have a new leader in charge next winter.
School officials announced that superintendent John Scheu on Wednesday offered the position to Ryan McClain, and McClain accepted contingent on school board approval.
The board next meets June 28.
McClain will replace Andy Schwochow, who led the Raiders for the last two seasons.
McClain is a 2009 graduate of Muskingum University where he was a four-year varsity letterwinner in football.
His basketball coaching career began in college where he coached the eighth-grade Cambridge girls basketball team and assisted at the high school level.
After moving back to central Ohio after college, he continued to coach girls basketball at Bunsold Middle School in the Marysville school district.
McClain then made the move to Fairbanks High School where he was the head junior varsity boys basketball coach and varsity assistant.
During his tenure at Fairbanks, he accumulated an impressive 40-4 record.
McClain’s most recent coaching stint was at Jonathan Alder High School. He served as the head freshman boys coach and varsity assistant.
McClain currently resides in Zanesfield with his wife and two daughters.
He will look to get the Ben Logan girls program turned back around after a tough 2020-21 campaign. The Raiders went 3-17 overall and 2-8 in the Central Buckeye Conference.
