RENO, Nev. – Nevada director of athletics Doug Knuth announced today that Ruth Lawanson will not return as head coach of the Wolf Pack volleyball team and that a national search for a new coach will begin immediately.
“Ruth’s credentials from her playing career are impeccable and she is a genuine and good person,” Knuth said. “Unfortunately this did not translate to the level of performance we want for our volleyball program. We thank her for the unwavering commitment our student-athletes. We have dedicated, hard-working and talented young women in the program. A new direction will provide them an opportunity to achieve academically, athletically and socially.”
Lawanson will remain with the University and take over administrative duties.
