CARROLLTON, Ga. – University of West Georgia Director of Athletics Daryl Dickey announced Tuesday that he has accepted the resignation of head volleyball coach Trina Braden after four years at the helm of the program. 

“We are certainly extremely appreciative of Trina and the work that she has done over the past four years to build a foundation for our volleyball program,” Dickey said. “We wish her and her family the best of luck in her future endeavors.”

In four years as head coach of the West Georgia volleyball program, Braden’s teams won 20 matches, including nine in her first season, where she took over a program that was in turmoil after the former coach resigned just three weeks before camp was scheduled to begin. 

“Given the unusual circumstances that brought Trina to West Georgia, she has never wavered in her commitment, dedication and resolve to put our program on the right track,” said Dickey. “Trina is a first class person and we cannot say enough about what she has done for us here.”

The university will start a national search for its next head coach immediately. Any interest or questions regarding the search should be directed to Athletic Director Daryl Dickey at ddickey@westga.edu
