The University of Evansville has filled its volleyball head coaching vacancy that opened after 10-year mainstay Mike Swan resigned in February.
A source close to the coaching search confirmed that Evansville hired Manuel “Manolo” Concepcion, a former Aces assistant under Swan and Western Carolina head coach.
The university will introduce Concepcion at a news conference Monday.
“Honestly, I can’t think of anybody that I’d rather see take over the job than Manolo,” Swan said when reached by phone Saturday. “I think it will be an easy transition for him to come in and continue what I was trying to do there.”
