Georgia Southern University’s head volleyball coach resigned Monday.

Coach Dustin Wood’s resignation was announced by Tom Kleinlein, director of athletics for GS.

Wood ended his tenure at GS with a 77-109 record, finishing the 2018 season with a 9-22 record.

Wood’s best season was in 2013 when he led the Eagles to 28 wins and a Southern Conference title.

“I want to thank Eagle Nation for the time that my family and I spent here,” Wood said in a press release. “We established great relationships with the community, Georgia Southern and the Athletic Department. I also would like to thank TK for the opportunity to lead our volleyball program. We will miss the people, but we are also looking forward to the next chapter.”

Kyle Gramit, assistant coach, has been named the interim coach. The search for a new coach has begun this morning.

The George-Anne reached out to Wood for the reason of his resignation and he has yet to reply.
