Athens, GA - University of Georgia volleyball coach Joel
McCartney has been relieved of his coaching duties effectively immediately according to an announcement Monday by UGA Director of Athletics Greg McGarity.

Currently in his fourth season as head coach, McCartney has
compiled an overall record of 62-55 and Southeastern Conference mark of 29-45.

“After a careful review of our volleyball program a change of
direction is needed,” said McGarity. “I appreciate Coach McCartney’s years of service to the University and Athletic Association and wish him well.”

McGarity said a national search would begin immediately “with a
commitment to find the best coach possible to lead our program.” He also said assistant coach Chad Hanson would serve as interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

Georgia’s yearly records to date over the past four seasons: 2007: 17-13, 8-12 SEC; 2008: 17-14, 10-10 SEC; 2009: 17-14, 8-12 SEC; and 2010: 11-14, 3-11.
