PAINESVILLE, Ohio—Lake Erie College Athletic Director Reid Guarnieri formally announced Thursday (July 17) the addition of Rob Rosner to the Storm administrative staff as the Director of Compliance.
Rosner will direct and oversee the areas of compliance for 21 varsity sports teams while serving as a liaison between several College departments. In his role, he will work to ensure the Storm teams, along with faculty, staff and boosters, operate within institutional, Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) and NCAA rules and regulations.
“We are delighted to be bringing Rob into the fold as our new Director of Compliance,” said Guarnieri. “His legal training and valuable experience at many levels in college administration should lend very well to the commitment we have made to provide our coaches and colleagues with an organized structure within athletics.”

His efforts have resulted in a multi-million dollar development campaign to install a new outdoor track and an artificial field turf at the school’s Memorial Stadium. He has also worked on fundraising campaigns for a new cross country course and major improvements to the baseball field. In addition to his fundraising and alumni relations duties, Rosner assisted with the spring football practice, working with the quarterbacks.
Rosner has also served as a Compliance Coordinator at Ohio State University and Cleveland State University. At Ohio State, Rosner worked with 16 teams to ensure that the student-athletes followed all NCAA, Big Ten and institutional rules and regulations. At Cleveland State, Rosner served in a two-person department under the Assistant Athletic Director to ensure that the student-athletes and coaches followed NCAA, Horizon League and institutional rules and guidelines. Rosner also interned in compliance at Florida International University.
“I am very excited to join the athletics administration at Lake Erie College as the Director of Compliance,” said Rosner. “It will be a pleasure to work with the staff to continue to build a strong atmosphere of compliance while allowing our student-athletes to thrive on and off the field.”
