Simmons returns to Ireton as interim athletic director

Bill Simmons was appointed interim athletic director at Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria, returning to a role he held from 2007 until 2018 when he retired. He replaces Bryce Bevill, who resigned at the close of the school year.

Simmons joined Ireton in 2001, where he served as business manager, director of operations and dean of students before assuming the position of athletic director. He has a bachelor’s in physical education from Iowa State University in Ames and a master’s in Catholic school leadership from Marymount University in Arlington. Prior to Ireton, he served for 23 years in the U.S. Marine Corps.

“Bill will be a blessing to our athletes, coaches and families, as he shares his knowledge of Bishop Ireton athletics and the WCAC through his work,” said Kathleen McNutt, head of school. “We are grateful for his willingness to ‘steady the helm’ while the search for a new athletic director takes place.”
