Report: Bonine leaving as NIAA executive director for same position in Louisiana

Eddie Bonine, the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association executive director, appears to be taking a new job.

The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported Thursday that Bonine has emerged as the front-runner to be the executive director of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association. The paper said Bonine was one of five candidates interviewed this week to replace outgoing executive director Kenny Henderson.

Bonine, who succeeded Jerry Hughes as the NIAA’s executive director in January 2007, was on a “leave of absence” from his post this week. He could not be reached for comment Friday night.

In July, Bonine was elected to serve on the National Federation of State High School Association’s governing board, representing Nevada, California, Arizona, Utah and Hawaii.

Bonine unsuccessfully attempted to get Bishop Gorman to move from full membership to associate membership in 2012 after several schools asked the association to remove Gorman from postseason contention due to the Gaels’ success in football, boys basketball and baseball.

He is just the third executive director in the NIAA’s history.
