HEAD COACH - MARK CORBIN
Corbin is entering into his second season as the head women’s volleyball coach. Corbin came to TMU with an ample amount of experience in coaching and education.
"I am excited and thankful for the opportunity to coach at Truett McConnell University," Corbin said. "I believe that God has great things in store for the volleyball program at TMU. With a good core of returning players and a very supportive athletic department, the goal is not only to see the volleyball team become more competitive and grow in the game of volleyball, but more importantly to see them grow in their love for Christ, their school, the community, and for one another.
I cannot wait to get started and work alongside such a great athletic staff and administration. There is a lot of work to do to get where we want to be, but I believe this group of girls is excited and ready to work hard. I believe God is at work and will allow this team to do great things both on and off the court for His glory."
