DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Brittany Williams has been named the acting head coach for Bethune-Cookman volleyball, announced Saturday morning by B-CU Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lynn W. Thompson. The announcement, made Saturday morning by B-CU Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lynn Thompson, comes following the resignation of former head coach Isaac Raphael.
Now entering into her third year with the Bethune-Cookman volleyball program, Williams spent the previous two seasons as an assistant coach under former head coach Raphael. While serving as an assistant, Williams assisted in the day-to-day duties of the program, as well as recruiting and coordinating travel.
