Tulsa Public Schools athletic director
Gil Cloud first reached out to Keith Ballard, Tulsa Public Schools superintendent, last January to help in the search for a new athletic director. But after coming out of retirement and agreeing to take the position himself on an interim basis, Cloud accepted the permanent job in May.
“I’m really excited about doing this job,” Cloud says. “I’m a graduate of Tulsa Public Schools, and I’m excited about the opportunity to move our programs up a notch.”
While this is Cloud’s first position within Tulsa Public Schools (TPS), he’s not unfamiliar with the role. Before coming to TPS, he held a number of coaching positions at both the high school and college levels. He also served as athletic director for Union Public Schools and Upper Iowa University and has consulted for colleges, universities and public schools.
