HAMPTON, Va. – Hampton University Director of Athletics Eugene Marshall Jr. has announced that head volleyball coach Janay Yancey’s contract will not be renewed for next season.
A national search for the next coach will begin immediately.
Yancey went 3-22 this past season, her first as a head coach after serving two years as an assistant coach with the Lady Pirates – a span in which the team won a combined 40 matches, won back-to-back MEAC Championships, and made two straight trips to the NCAA Tournament.
The Lady Pirates were 3-9 in MEAC play this past season, finishing fifth in the MEAC Northern Division and missing the MEAC Tournament.
On a team that had just two juniors and one senior, freshman outside hitter Reeana Richardson earned Third Team All-MEAC honors. She ranked second in the conference in kills and fourth in the MEAC in points this past season.
