The University of Cincinnati announced on Wednesday that Molly Alvey will be its next head volleyball coach.
Alvey could not be reached for comment, but had let the team know during a team meeting Tuesday she had accepted another coaching opportunity.
During her two seasons as head coach, Alvey led the Cougars to a 38-24 record and their first top-three finish in Conference USA finish since 2005.
“We will all miss her a lot as well as our assistants,” freshman setter Caitlin Ogletree said in an email. “They have all taught us so much on the court, and especially off the court. We all admire them as not only coaches, but people. They have earned nothing but respect from each one of us and we are so thankful we have had the chance to play for them.”
Ogletree said that Alvey was a big reason why she chose UH, but her feelings haven’t changed as a result of her leaving.
“This is my home now,” Ogletree said.
“I am still 100-percent confident in our program. We have not only great potential, but great talent and work ethic. I trust our Athletics Department will bring in nothing but what’s best for our team an our university.”
