Rachel Miller to step down as volleyball coach

Concordia University has announced that Rachel Miller is resigning her position of head volleyball coach.  Miller spent the past seven years as head volleyball coach at her alma mater. 

“We want to thank Rachel for her commitment to the Bulldog volleyball program as head coach,” said Devin Smith, Concordia University Athletic Director.  “She also had a tremendous career as a student-athlete here at Concordia, and she represents what it means to be a true champion of character.  She will always be a part of our Bulldog athletic department through the relationships she has built with the staff and student-athletes.” 

Miller totaled a combined 65 wins in her first three seasons at the helm of the Bulldog volleyball program.  Concordia totaled at least 20 wins in each of those seasons.  She finished with over 100 wins in her Bulldog coaching career and was inducted into the Concordia University Athletic Hall of Fame this past year for her efforts in both volleyball and basketball during her collegiate career. 

“I am thankful for the opportunity to coach and be a part of the lives of many young women over the past seven years,” said Miller.  “I have greatly enjoyed working at my alma mater, and I wish the program and university the best.  However, I believe the needs and requirements of the volleyball program are taking me in a different direction than my commitment to my family.” 

Concordia University will begin a search for its next volleyball coach immediately.  The position and application details will be available on the Concordia University website as soon as possible.
