Loyola men’s volleyball head coach Mark Hulse’s contract will not be renewed, as announced in a press release from Loyola Athletics Apr. 28.
“We would like to thank Coach Hulse for everything he has done in leading the men’s volleyball program here at Loyola,” Loyola Director of Athletics Steve Watson said. “We wish him and his family nothing but the best in the future.”
During his time at Loyola, Hulse led his team to an overall record of 120-61, including 34 victories against nationally ranked opponents. He also helped develop 11 All-American athletes and received Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (MIVA) Coach of the Year honors in 2018, while also leading his team to a share of the MIVA regular season title in the same year.
The 2022 season was Hulse’s third season with less than 20 wins, as the Ramblers finished second in the MIVA regular season with a record of 18-9. The year came to an end in the semifinals of the MIVA tournament as the team fell to Purdue University Fort Wayne April 20.
Hulse wasn’t immediately available for comment following the announcement.
With Hulse’s departure, Loyola Athletics said it will search for a new head coach to fill the vacancy for the 2023 season.
