“I am excited to welcome Matt to the administrative team of Reitz Memorial High School,” said Reitz Memorial principal Sally Sternberg. “His experience, both as a classroom teacher and coach, will serve as a solid foundation as he takes the helm; and I look forward to seeing the success he will create for the Tigers Athletic Department.”

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to continue serving Reitz Memorial High School in the new role of Athletic Director,” Weber said. “I look forward to working with the great families and staff as we continue to grow the already-strong program for our student athletes.”

An Evansville native, Weber is a 2000 graduate of Mater Dei High School. He and his wife, Crystal, have two children and attend St. Philip Parish in Posey County.
