Atkinson chosen to coach Towson volleyball team

February 27, 2010|By Sports Digest

Towson hired Bruce Atkinson to become the 10th volleyball coach in the program's 32-year history, athletic director Mike Hermann announced. Atkinson was the coach at the University of Hawaii at Hilo for the past three seasons, leading the Vulcans to a 69-14 overall record. He was named PacWest Coach of the Year in 2007, when the Vulcans finished 23-5, and in 2009, when the team went 25-2 and made its first postseason appearance in more than a decade. "He obviously has a very successful track record as a coach, but he also brings great passion and enthusiasm for the sport, along with a can-do attitude," Hermann said. Atkinson has also served as coach at the University of Texas at Brownsville and Dana College in Nebraska.
