Doug English, who served as an assistant coach with the University of Delaware women's volleyball program the past two seasons, has been named the new head coach at NCAA II Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho.
"This is a great opportunity for Doug," said Delaware head coach Bonnie Kenny. "He has paid his dues as an assistant coach and it is time for him to lead the NNU program. I would like to thank Doug for his loyalty and dedication to the UD volleyball program and wish he and his wife Mindy nothing but great success in all of their future endeavors.”
A search to replace English will begin immediately.
