HAMBURG, NY – Andrew Walker, the head coach of the men’s volleyball team at Hilbert College since 2007, has announced his resignation. Coach Walker’s squad showed consistent improvement on and off the court each of the last three seasons with this 2010 squad receiving conference and NCAA recognition. “I’ve struggled with this decision the last few months,” explained Walker. “I wasn’t sure whether I could commit to the program fully and still have time to be at home and participate in the lives of my young children. Family is a priority right now, and I am going to miss the athletes at Hilbert.”
