John Otey, who resigned last month as the athletic director at William Fleming High School, has been named the new AD at Jefferson Forest.
Otey replaces Steve Mills, who is returning to the coaching ranks as Jefferson Forest's girls basketball coach.
Otey turned in his resignation, effective July 1, at Fleming after less than two years in charge of the Colonels' athletic program. Otey became Fleming's AD in the summer of 2011 after serving as the school's head athletic trainer.
William Fleming and JF both will be members of Class 4A Conference 24 next year when the VHSL begins its new six-classification system.
JF will hold a reception for Otey from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the high school.
