Snyder Resigns as Volleyball Coach

NEW LONDON, Conn.--Eric Snyder, head coach of the Coast Guard Academy women's volleyball team, has resigned after two seasons at the helm.

Snyder had a two-year record of 44-20 overall and 14-4 in the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC). He led the Bears to an ECAC Division III New England Championship and a share of the NEWMAC regular season championship with a record of 26-6 overall and 8-1 in conference play in 2011.

"We thank him for his service to the Academy and the volleyball program, and wish him well in his future endeavors," said Coast Guard Academy Director of Athletics Tim Fitzpatrick.

Coast Guard will conduct a national search for a new head coach.
