After six years with Georgia, Lizzy Stemke has been dismissed as Georgia’s head volleyball coach, though it is being deemed a resignation.
The Bulldogs’ season ended last week with a loss in the SEC tournament, their overall season record was 13-18, 1-17 in the SEC. In her six years at Georgia, Stemke went 79-105 overall and 32-80 in the SEC.
Stemke posted only one winning season in her time at Georgia, coming in 2013 when the team went 22-10 overall and 11-9 in the SEC.
Despite starting the 2016 season off with a 12-1 record after non-conference play, the Bulldogs couldn’t do anything right in the SEC. Their lone conference win came to South Carolina in a four set match. The remaining matches were sweeps and four set matches, with only three five set matches taking place.
In August 2010 Georgia hired a new Athletics Director Greg McGarity, who fired then-head volleyball coach Joel McCartney in the middle of a season that ended 15-17 overall and 6-14 in the SEC. McGarity hired Stemke, who was previously an assistant at Nebraska.
With Stemke’s resignation, Georgia will begin a national search for a new head coach.
