CHICAGO – Chicago State University Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics Dr. Denisha Hendricks has announced the hiring of Brandon Reeves as the university’s new head volleyball coach.
“We’re very excited to have Coach Reeves join the CSU Athletics family. We’re looking forward to an exciting volleyball season coming up and are ready to welcome our team to campus in a couple of weeks,” stated Hendricks.
Reeves comes to CSU after serving the last two seasons as head volleyball coach at Concordia University in Selma, Ala., where he tallied a 25-8 record last season, was ranked No. 1 in the USCAA power rankings and advanced to the Elite Eight of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) National Tournament. In addition, he was also a finalist for the USCAA National Coach of the Year accolades.
Reeves also served as an assistant coach for the Concordia women’s basketball team that advanced to the semifinals of the USCAA Division I Tournament last year with a 24-4 season record.
Before his stint at Concordia, Reeves spent six seasons as head coach at Rust College, an NCAA Division III institution from Holly Spring, Miss. During his tenure at Rust, the Lady Bearcats posted an 81-55 record under Reeves while advancing to the NCAA South Region Tournament in addition to producing a third-team All-American and two all-region performers.
Reeves also served as head coach of the Rust men’s volleyball team, who became the first southern Historically Black College/University (HBCU) to field a collegiate men’s program. The 2013 squad posted an 18-6 record and ranked 11th nationally in the NCAA D-III poll. He also coached men’s and women’s track & field at Rust.
