Midway through the 2017 season, Missouri S&T head coach Jason Holt has resigned his position to accept a job with the NCSA recruiting program as a volleyball coach. Assistant Ashley Jurgensmeyer has been named the interim head coach for the remainder of the season – her first year with the program after coaching at the high school level for 5 seasons at Broken Arrow High School in Oklahoma.

“We appreciate Jason’s hard work and the role he played in re-starting the program eleven years ago” said Mark Mullin, Director of Athletics. “We wish Jason nothing but the best in his future endeavors.

Holt has been the program’s only coach since the school announced the return of women’s volleyball in 2007. The team won back-to-back GLVC West Division titles in 2011 and 2012 and made NCAA Division II national championship tournament appearances in both 2011 and 2012.

Holt made $47,687 in 2016 according to public records, which made him the 5th highest-paid head coach at the school.

In Holt’s time with the program, the team amassed a 148-194 record, with a best mark of 24-10 in 2011.

The team was swept in its first game after Holt’s resignation on Thursday, losing to Indianapolis 3-0 (25-12, 25-18, 25-21).
