Following Meredith Franklin´s relinquishing her responsibilities as head volleyball coach, Andre Ferreira has agreed to step into the role as interim head coach of the Golden Tigers volleyball team, Athletics Director Mike Lochstampfor announced. Ferreira is also the Golden Tigers tennis coach. Lochstampfor said that a search for a permanent head volleyball coach is underway.
Franklin now will devote all her energies on her role as sports information director for all of the Brenau athletics programs, an additional responsibility she assumed following the departure earlier this year of basketball coach Gary Bays. “In the past the SID function has been an additional responsibility assigned to one of our coaches,” said Lochstampfor. “However, the intercollegiate athletics program at Brenau continues to grow at a pace that demands more focused attention on that responsibility.” Brenau currently fields eight intercollegiate teams in National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics competition. The SID has responsibility for, among other things, posting game results, individual statistics and news about the athletics programs with various media outlets and on the Golden Tigers Web site.
The Golden Tigers currently have a record of 10-11 for the regular seasons, which ends Nov. 5. The Southern States Athletic Conference Tournament begins Nov. 10. The Tigers are 3-7 in conference play.
