Frederick resigns as Missouri Western volleyball coach

MWSUMissouri Western Director of Athletics Kurt McGuffin announced Monday that Cory Frederick has resigned as Griffon Volleyball Coach effective immediately.

Frederick resigns after four seasons at the helm.  He became the sixth head coach in program history in 2009 and led the Griffons to a 37-72 overall record and a 25-51 record in MIAA play.  The Griffons had improved their win total in every season under Frederick going 16-16 a season ago which was the most wins in a season since 2006.  He inherited a program that had won just four games in 2008.

“We’d like to thank Coach Frederick for his time and energy he gave to our volleyball program,” McGuffin said.  “Cory has been a great role model for our student-athletes and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Frederick came to MWSU after five seasons at Park University as the Head Men’s Volleyball Coach.  During that time, he led the Pirates to four straight NAIA National Tournament Appearances including winning the National Championship in 2008.

Prior to his time at Park, Frederick served as Assistant Coach at MWSU under then Head Coach Cindy Brauck.

He coached nine All-MIAA Selections in his tenure at MWSU including MIAA Freshman of the Year and three time All-MIAA selection Stephanie Hattey and freshman outside hitter Jessie Thorup.

A search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
