Brian Moyon has resigned as the head coach of the Montana women’s volleyball schedule after two seasons at the helm. He had a combined record of 13-41, including 6-26 in Big Sky Conference play, since he was hired in January of 2015. The school has named Allison Lawrence the interim head coach – she’s been with the program since 2010 and was a finalist for the head coaching position when it was last open 2 years ago.

The team was just 2-14 in conference play this past season, which put them in last place in the North division and tied for the worst record in the 11-team conference. The team was out-hit by their opponents in the 2016 season .117-.245, and their set record on the season was 69-21 in favor of their opponents.

Doyon took over the program after a roller-coaster tenure by his predecessor Jerry Wagner, who went just 6-23 in his final season as the coach but was 16-15 and 5th in the conference the year before. In 2 seasons, Doyon was unable to re-capture the team’s success from the late 80s and early 90s, where at one point they qualified for 3 NCAA tournaments in 5 seasons. Doyon was just the 5th head coach in program history.
