Lee Maes Resigns as Volleyball Coach

Following a disappointing 10-22 season - the worst record during his four years at the helm - Virginia Volleyball coach Lee Maes has resigned his position.

Virginia Director of Athletics Craig Littlepage made the announcement yesterday and a press release can be found on VirginiaSports.com.

Prior to coming to Virginia, Maes was a well-respected assistant coach at Nebraska, a team commonly found in the top 10 nationally. He quickly gained notoriety as a head coach by bringing in a talented set of recruiting classes. His 2009 recruiting class was ranked 15th nationally and the 2010 class was ranked 9th nationally. Those were Virginia's first-ever nationally ranked classes.

Unfortunately, those recruiting classes did not turn into success on the court during his four year tenure. His best season was the first, when he guided the Cavaliers to their only winning record during that span. They finished 17-15 that year with a 9-11 record in the ACC. Overall, Maes compiled a record of 53-70, 28-52 in ACC play.

There's no word yet on where Lee Maes is headed next or who Virginia will find to replace him. But given the success Littlepage has had with his hires so far, you can bet we'll be looking at some promising targets.
