Illinois State’s Myers Resigns Head Coaching Duties

Melissa Myers, the head coach of Illinois State University, officially resigned her position with the university citing family considerations and to pursue professional opportunities outside of coaching.

Myers has been the coach for the Redbirds for the past nine seasons, accumulating a record of 168-116, winning the Missouri Valley Conference regular season and tournament championship in 2014. In that season, the team went undefeated in conference play with a school-record 23-match winning streak.

In her final season with Illinois State, Myers picked up a 17-15 record, going 9-9 in conference play.

“It has certainly been a difficult decision for me, and while I have enjoyed coaching for nearly 20-years, I feel it’s important to get closer and prioritize my family and pursue professional opportunities outside of the coaching profession,” said Myers to WJBC.

A national search for her replacement will go into effect immediately.
