The Utah High School Activities Association has selected Dixie State University director of Media Relations Jeff Cluff to be its new Supervisor of Officials starting July 14.
He replaces Mike Petty, who is retiring.
The Tooele High graduate has officiated high school baseball, basketball and football and has umpired collegiate and independent minor league baseball. He served as Supervisor of Officials for baseball in the southern Utah Officials Association and has been that group’s baseball assigner since 2007.
"I want to thank the DSU family and feel very fortunate to have been part of a tremendous institution for the last 14 years. I have many fond memories that I will cherish forever," Cluff said.
The Dixie State official has managed DixieAthletics.com, written game notes, and coordinated schedules and operation of athletic facilities. He helped host four UHSAA state basketball tournaments, six UHSAA baseball state tournaments and UHSAA semifinal football playoff games.
As the UHSAA Supervisor of Officials, Cluff will oversee assigning of officials and arbiting. He also will handle ejection reports, recruitment and retainment of officials.
"Jeff brings with him a wealth of officiating experience and assigning," said UHSAA executive director Rob Cuff. "He has background in activities administration, event management and the ability to work with diverse groups. As a staff, we are excited for the opportunity to have Jeff join our team."
