In a statement Monday morning it was announced that Middle Tennessee head volleyball coach Matt Peck would no longer be with the team. Peck, in his 12th season with the team, posted a 208-241 record as the head coach, and this season the team sits at 8-19 with three regular season games left on the schedule.
“After an extensive review of the volleyball program and declining results the past four seasons we felt a change in direction was needed,” MTSU Athletic Director Chris Massaro said in a statement Monday. “We want to thank Matt for some of the success he has provided our program over the years and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”
In response, Peck said the following on his personal Facebook page:
Peck also responded to the comments of Massaro on his page as well:
Diane Turnham, the associate athletic director and former women’s volleyball coach, will serve as the interim coach until a new coach has been hired. Turnham has been the head coach at Middle Tennessee twice, from 1982-1987 and again from 1992-1994. A national coaching search will begin immediately.
