Bere named volleyball coach at USI
The University of Southern Indiana has named Craig Bere as its new head volleyball coach. Bere replaces Chrissy Smith who accepted a position at Northern Illinois University.
Bere comes to USI from Mississippi State University where he has been an assistant coach since 1997. He served as the coordinator of the Bulldog defense and worked closely with MSU’s outside hitters on the court. Bere coordinated MSU’s recruiting efforts and handled additional administrative duties off the court.
“We are eager to see Coach Bere continue the excitement this program has generated the last few seasons,” said Jon Mark Hall, USI Director of Athletics. “He has demonstrated the ability to teach the game and place the student athlete in a position to succeed on the court and in the classroom.” [more]
