Nunley Steps Down From Volleyball Post
July 12, 2000
LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech head volleyball coach Jeff Nelson announced today that assistant coach Gregg Nunley has resigned his position to pursue a career in teaching.
"Gregg's done a great job here and did everything with a lot of passion," Nelson said. "During his time here, he brought in some of the best recruiting classes we've had. He certainly will be missed. We appreciate the work he has done for Texas Tech volleyball."
Nunley served as assistant for the Red Raider program for the last two seasons. He leaves the program to continue his teaching career at Christ the King School in Lubbock. He also will continue work toward his master's degree at Tech. Prior to his two seasons at Tech, Nunley taught at Estacado High School and coached the volleyball team to its first-ever winning season in 1998.
"This has been a great experience," Nunley said of his time at Tech. "I learned a lot from Jeff and Nancy (Todd) about coaching. I appreciate the opportunity I've had for the last couple of years.
"I missed the classroom and wanted to get back into teaching."
