Griz Teacher/Coach – Bill Snyder

New Godinez Athletic Director


It is my honor and pleasure to announce that a very qualified professional educator/coach, Bill Snyder has been chosen to lead the Godinez Athletic Department for the new school year 2021-2022.  I am confident that Mr. Snyder will do an incredible job as we’ve worked together over the years and he will bring a new perspective and leadership to the Godinez sports family.  Not long after the school opened, Bill was the Godinez Boys’ AD for 2 years (2008-2010) before stepping down to spend more time with family.  Luckily, he has decided to come back now and has been hired to fill the vacancy as the Godinez Athletic Director upon my retirement this June.  I know Bill will do a great job and continue to work to provide an educational based high school sports experience for all Godinez student-athletes and coaching staff.  Congratulations and all the best to Godinez Athletic Director  Snyder moving forward, I have complete confidence the Godinez Athletic Department is in very capable hands!
