He said he knew it was a possibility, and took the opportunity when it came up.
Maplewood Richmond Heights one-year athletic director Malcolm Hill will be an assistant principal at University City High School, not athletic director, as originally planned. He said he knew it was a possibility. "It’s something I went to school for," he said. "I'm pretty sure I’ll do a good job at it. I’ll be able to do good things over there."

"It’s a career move for me so I decided to take it." MRH's seven-year assistant principal Mike Maclin is leaving to be principal…

Eyewitnesses at the MRH-Valley Park game said the referee yelled at Frazier, and Frazier had no reply.
Maplewood Richmond Heights boys basketball coach Corey Frazier didn’t witness one of his team’s big wins of the season because he had been ejected the game before. Per MSHSAA rules, he had to miss the following game. The Blue Devils beat Whitfield 47-41 on Saturday, the game where Caleb Greenwalt hit four 3-pointers. It was in a game the day before, against Valley Park, that Frazier was ejected. Why he was ejected seems to be a mystery. In a St. Louis Post Dispatch article, eyewitnesses at the game are quoted as saying the official who ejected Frazier stood over him and yelled at him. Frazier took to Twitter following the game that night. “Never been so miss treated before in my life. Smh... Devil is busy tonight. Thank God I'm a Christian…

Robertson played with head coach Jonathan Webb during MRH's last district title game prior to the 2011 game against Brentwood. “You know he has a passion and cares about this high school,” athletic director Malcolm Hill said. “He’s going to work hard with our young baseball players, so we’re excited to have him.” Webb said Robertson will work primarily with infielders and the offensive game, especially base-running skills. Robertson graduated from the University of Tennessee with a business degree last year, and volunteered as an assistant MRH soccer coach in the fall. Rob Welcker, …

He took two Maplewood Richmond Heights teams to state-level competition last year, and he's being noticed.
Forty or so Blue Devils arrive at Ryan Hummert Park, walking the couple blocks from school, carrying shoulder pads. They don’t spend much time in the shade before head football coach Brandon Gregory (“Coach Greg,” “BG”) gets on them to start warming up. They realize that Gregory, 31, knows his stuff. His football days began at age 6, and his credentials include football coach of the year from the Demetrious Johnson Charitable Foundation and the St. Louis American newspaper. Those came last season after he led the Maplewood Richmond Heights football team to the state championship game in his first year as head coach.
