Patrick NICHOLAS HEAD COACH

First year at UNCG Eighth year overall (130-110) George Mason, 1986 Patrick Nicholas begins his first season at the helm of the UNC Greensboro volleyball program in 2009. It is his ninth career season as a Division I head coach. Nicholas becomes just the sixth head coach in the program’s last 30 years. This will be his third tenure as a women’s head coach having served as the women’s head coach at Lehigh and Troy. In eight seasons as a head coach of women’s intercollegiate volleyball, he is 130110. “We think Patrick is the right person to continue the development of our volleyball program and move us in the direction we want all of our programs to go,” Interim Director of Athletics Rod Wyatt said. “Patrick has the personality to not only engage our campus community, but also the greater Greensboro community and garner support for the program. He believes in our mission and is committed to our student-athletes’ success both in the classroom and on the court. He is a quality person and coach.” Nicholas arrives at UNCG after serving the past two seasons as the assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Marshall University. While at Marshall, Nicholas helped lead the Thundering Herd to a 35-23 overall record in those two seasons, including a 22-8 mark in 2007. Marshall won the Conference USA regular-season championship with a 15-1 league record that season. He also helped mold three student-athletes into American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-Americans.

national and club programs around the nation. In 1990, he was the head coach for the U.S. Olympic Sports Festival Team that earned a bronze medal. He later went on to be an assistant coach for the U.S. Women’s National Team from 1993-94. After that, he coached the San Diego Spikers of the NVA women’s professional league and led them to the league championship.

“I’m very excited and honored to lead the UNCG women’s volleyball program,” Nicholas said. “I am very impressed with the commitment that the university, athletic department and especially Chancellor Linda Brady have made toward fostering a winning atmosphere. I am looking forward to getting started and ready to start training with the student-athletes. I would also like to thank Rod Wyatt, (UNCG Senior Women’s Administrator) Cathy Roberts as well as (Marshall head coach) Mitch Jacobs for giving me this tremendous opportunity.”

While also coaching at Lehigh, Nicholas was the head coach of the United States 14 and under National Team from 1997-2000. He served as the on-site director, coordinator and evaluator at the national tryouts for the USA girl’s junior, youth and 14 and under teams from 1997-2004. He was also an assistant coach for the USA Women’s National A-2 Team in 1999 and 2001. He was the head coach of Club Annapolis that won a gold medal at the 1990 U.S. Open Championships and a silver medal in 1997.

Nicholas has had two previous stints as a women’s head coach on the collegiate level at Troy University and Lehigh University. He received his first women’s head coaching job at Lehigh, where he coached from 1997-2003. He led the Mountain Hawks to a 121-92 record in his seven seasons and was the first coach in school history to lead the program to seven consecutive winning seasons. While at Lehigh, he won the Patriot League tournament championship in 1997. He also had a total of 16 student-athletes named All-Patriot League. After leaving Lehigh as the school’s all-time leader in wins, Nicholas went on to coach at Troy for the 2004 season. Nicholas left the program after that season to open his own volleyball training center. He owned and operated the High Performance Training Volleyball School in Austin, Texas. He also served as the men’s head coach for Navy’s program from 1986-90 while serving as an officer and instructor at the Naval Academy. Nicholas was named the EIVA Coach of the Year on the men’s side in 1989. When he took over as head coach prior to the 1986 season, he led the squad to its first-ever top-20 finish, and his teams continued to finish in the top 20 throughout his tenure there. As well as being a head coach, Nicholas has served as an assistant coach for many nationally recognized programs. He coached at Ohio State (1995-97), Purdue (1994-95), Navy (199294) and George Mason (1984-85). While at George Mason, Nicholas helped coach the team to back-to-back final four appearances where they won the third-place match both seasons. At Ohio State, he helped the Buckeyes to back-to-back Round of 16 appearances in the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship. In addition to intercollegiate coaching, Nicholas has a wealth of experience coaching several

Nicholas earned his bachelor’s degree in 1986 in parks, recreation and leisure studies from George Mason, where he was a member of the men’s volleyball club team in 1983. Nicholas helped George Mason’s men’s program earn its first-ever top-10 national ranking and first-ever trip to the finals of the conference tournament in school history. Upon his graduation, Nicholas played for the Washington Volleyball Club and won a bronze medal at the U.S. Open Championships in 1987.

THE SOUTHERN CONFERENCE The Southern Conference, which began its 89th season of intercollegiate competition in 2009, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has been on the forefront of innovation and originality in developing creative solutions to address issues facing intercollegiate athletics. From establishing the first conference basketball tournament (1921), tackling the issue of freshmen eligibility (1922), developing women’s championships (1984), to becoming the first conference to install the three-point goal in basketball (1980), the Southern Conference has been a pioneer. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fiftholdest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. Hundreds of Southern Conference student-athletes have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America and all-district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in five states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference offices are located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the league first class meeting areas and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. Membership history On Feb. 25, 1921, representatives from 14 of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (SIAA) 30 members met at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hotel to establish the Southern Intercollegiate Conference. On hand at the inaugural meeting were officials from Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn), Clemson, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and Washington & Lee. Dr. S.V. Sanford of Georgia was chosen as acting chairman and N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee was named secretary. The decision to form a new athletic conference was motivated by the desire to have a workable number of conference games for each league member. With 30 schools in the SIAA by the early 1920s, it was impossible to play every school at least once during the regular season and many schools went several years between playing some conference members. In addition, in 1920, the SIAA voted down proposed rules that an athlete must be in a college a year before playing on its teams and refused to abolish a rule permitting athletes to play

summer baseball for money. Play began in the fall of 1921 and a year later, six more schools joined the fledgling league including Tulane (which had attended the inaugural meeting but had elected not to join), Florida, Louisiana (LSU), Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929. By the 1930s, membership in the Southern Conference had reached 23 schools. C.P. “Sally” Miles of Virginia Tech, president of the Southern Conference, called the annual league meeting to order on Dec. 9, 1932 at the Farragut Hotel in Knoxville, Tenn. Georgia’s Dr. Sanford announced that 13 institutions west and south of the Appalachian Mountains were reorganizing as the Southeastern Conference. Members of the new league included Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Florida, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mississippi A&M, University of the South, Tennessee, Tulane and Vanderbilt. According to the minutes of the meeting, Dr. Sanford stated that the division was made along geographical lines. Florida’s Dr. J.J. Tigert, acting as spokesman for the withdrawing group, regretted the move but believed it was necessary as the Southern Conference had grown too large. The resignations were accepted and the withdrawing schools formed the new league which began play in 1932. The Southern Conference continued with membership of 10 institutions including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, VMI, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. The second major shift occurred some 20 years later. By 1952, the Southern Conference included 17 colleges and universities. Another split occurred when seven schools including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest departed to form the Atlantic Coast Conference which began play in 1953. The revamped Southern Conference included members The Citadel, Davidson, Furman, George Washington, Richmond, VMI, Virginia Tech, Washington & Lee, West Virginia and William & Mary. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that includes 12 institutions and a footprint that spans five states: Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Samford, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. Leadership John Iamarino was officially named commissioner of the conference on January 2, 2006. Iamarino has promoted the Southern Conference through an ambitious agenda which has improved competition, upgraded compliance-related matters, launched the conference’s Hall of Fame and increased the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference.

Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. In 1987, he was succeeded by Dave Hart who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, N.C., to Asheville, N.C. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current conference logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. Danny Morrison headed the conference from 2001-2005 and orchestrated the league’s move from Asheville, N.C., to Spartanburg, S.C. Under Morrison’s leadership, the conference increased its marketing and promotional efforts. Championship history The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. Commissioner Germann spearheaded the Southern Conference’s expansion to include women’s athletics during the 1983-84 season. That year, league championships were held in volleyball, basketball and tennis. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994. The Germann Cup, named in honor of the former commissioner, annually recognizes the top women’s athletics programs in the conference. From its humble beginnings, women’s athletics have become an integral part of the Southern Conference and its success. The Southern Conference declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf - and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track & field, tennis, golf and softball.

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro was first chartered back on February 18, 1891 as the State Normal and Industrial School. It was the first state-supported school for the higher education of women in North Carolina. Founded by Charles Duncan McIver, it became coeducational in 1963. Today, in its 119th year of existance, the campus covers 210 acres in downtown Greensboro and has an enrollment that exceeded 17,000 for the first time ever last year. For fall 2008, 17,467 students were enrolled, including 13,453 undergraduates.

MINERVA

Charles Duncan McIver, founder of the State Normal and Industrial School (now UNCG), decided Minerva, Roman goddess of Wisdom, would be a good symbol for the school. Beginning with the first diploma in 1893, the head of Minerva has appeared on every diploma awarded by the institution.

Dr. Linda BRADY Chancellor Dr. Linda P. Brady became the 10th chancellor of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro August 1, 2008. Brady, 61, succeeded Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan, UNCG’s first woman chancellor, who retired July 31, 2008, after almost 14 years in the post. In recommending Brady to the Board of Governors, UNC President Erskine Bowles said: “Over the past 25 years, Linda Brady has accumulated a wealth of leadership experience at highly respected public, urban universities, as well as in the halls of Washington. At each step along the way, she has proven herself to be an energetic leader who promotes collaboration, creative problem-solving, and real-life commitment to scholarship, research, and public service. … “With her broad experience in higher education and federal government, her demonstrated integrity and sound judgment, and her profound understanding of the global marketplace in which our students must compete, Linda Brady will be a forceful and effective leader for UNC Greensboro.” A native of New York City and the first member of her family to attend college, Brady graduated from Douglass College, the women’s division of Rutgers University, in 1969 with a degree in political science. She received a master’s degree in the field from Rutgers (1970) and a doctorate in political science from The Ohio State University (1974). She began her academic career as an assistant professor of political science at Vanderbilt University in 1973 and joined the faculty at Goucher College in Maryland three years later. From 1978 to 1985, Brady held several positions in the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Defense. Among other roles, she served as a political analyst in the State Department’s Office of Disarmament and Arms Control and as special assistant for mutual and balanced force reductions in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. She later served as a senior fellow in international security and arms control at the Carter Center of Emory University (1986-87) and as a distinguished professor of national security at the U.S. Military Academy (1991-92). From 1993 to 2001, Brady led the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she was also a professor of international affairs. She joined North Carolina State University in 2001 as Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and professor of political science, and over the next five years was credited with building the stature and visibility of the College, launching a number of new graduate degree programs, and significantly increasing external support for the humanities and social sciences at NC State. She left North Carolina in 2006 to become the chief academic and operating officer at the University of Oregon. Brady has authored or co-edited three books and numerous book chapters and scholarly articles in the fields of American foreign policy, international negotiation, and arms control. Among other professional organizations, she is a member of the International Studies Association, the American Political Science Association, the International Institute for

Strategic Studies, and the Council on Foreign Relations. A past recipient of the Georgia Tech School of Social Sciences Teaching Award, she has earned the Superior Honor Award from the U.S. Department of State and is a two-time recipient of the Outstanding Civilian Service Medal from the Department of the Army. She was an American Council on Education Fellow in 1997-98, serving her fellowship year at the University of Iowa under the mentorship of President Mary Sue Coleman and Provost Jon Whitmore. Since moving to UNCG, Brady has become a member of the Greensboro Rotary Club. She is also on the Board of Directors for United Way of Greater Greensboro and the Greensboro Partnership. Brady is married to Gustav “Steve” Heyer, a retired Army officer. She has two adult stepsons and three grandchildren: Stephen Heyer and his wife, Suzanne, live in Richmond, Va., with their children Alyx, Megan, and Andrew Casey, while Michael Heyer lives in Chicago, Ill. In accepting the position at UNCG, Brady said, “This is one of the very best jobs in American higher education. I am so grateful for this opportunity and humbled by the trust you have place in me. I shall not let you down.”

Rod WYATT Interim Director of Athletics

Rod Wyatt, 49, is an athletics administrator with nearly 20 years of experience. He is currently serving as UNCG’s Interim Director of Athletics after Nelson Bobb stepped down after 26 years in the AD’s post. Wyatt was named to his post of Associate Director of Athletics for Student Welfare at the UNC Greensboro in May 2003, although he has been a part of the UNCG athletic administration in various roles for the vast majority of his career (1987-96 and 2001-present). Wyatt’s current duties include day-to-day management of the academic enhancement program, compliance services, academic compliance services, sports medicine / athletic training services (including the CHAMPS life skills program), the strength and conditioning program, and serving as the sport administrator for the men’s golf, women’s golf and baseball programs. He also serves in an ex-officio capacity on the Chancellors Advisory Committee for Intercollegiate Athletics and the Senate’s Faculty Committee on Intercollegiate Athletics. Prior to his re-appointment, Wyatt served as the Associate Director of Athletics for Public Affairs. In that role, he was responsible for the day-to-day supervision of the ticket office, as swell as sports information and marketing efforts, and oversaw management of the cheerleaders, dance team and pep band. Additionally, Wyatt served as the official spokesperson for the department and was an integral part of the initial launch of the athletics department’s Web site. Wyatt has been actively involved in collegiate athletics for 27 years. His professional career began at Louisburg Junior College in 1982 when he was named an assistant men’s basketball coach. In 1987, Wyatt came to UNCG for the first time and was named the first full-time assistant men’s basketball coach and facility and equipment assistant. Three years later, Wyatt became the university’s first head coach in the sport of cross country. Additionally, he was named the institution’s first Compliance Coordinator, being given the charge of monitoring the athletics department’s compliance with NCAA, federal, state and institutional rules and regulations during a key time as the program was transitioning to NCAA Division I. After serving in that dual position for two years, Wyatt gave up his coaching duties and was named Assistant Director of Athletics for Compliance. In 1994, Wyatt’s title was changed to Special Assistant to the Director of Athletics and he was charged with managing the athletics department’s ticket operations and developing policy and procedure for ticketing in accordance with university, state, NCAA and athletics department requirements. Wyatt also served for five years as the Assistant Commissioner for Compliance at the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) from 1996-2001. Wyatt’s duties at the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference were extensive, serving a variety of constituencies and having the ultimate duty of certifying student-athletes’ eligibility for the league’s 11 member institutions. On a national level, Wyatt has recently served as a member of the Division

UNCG VOLLEYBALL MEDIA GUIDE

I Committee on Academic Performance (CAP) – the committee charged with developing and implementing the Academic Progress Program with its relation to the Academic Progress Rate (APR) of Division I student-athletes throughout the country. Prior to his service on CAP, Wyatt was a member of the NCAA Division I Initial Eligibility Core Course Waivers Committee for four years, reviewing initial eligibility waivers related to the NCAA Clearinghouse. He also served NACDA as a faculty member at the first Academic Reform Institute (May-June 2007) for support services across the United States. On the state level, Wyatt has served on the Board of Governor’s Athletics Report Review Committee. He has served in numerous advisory roles with the president’s office regarding system-wide academic benchmarks, using retention and graduation rates for all students attending UNC system institutions. He has also provided insight and guidance on how to integrate the NCAA APR data into the system’s athletics reporting database. Wyatt received a bachelor of science degree in psychology from Atlantic Christian College (now Barton College) in 1982 and master of science degree in Sports Coaching from the United States Sports Academy in 1987.

SPARTAN SUCCESS

Student-athletes at UNCG have enjoyed a tremendous amount of success over the years. Although the athletic department just celebrated its 40th season last year, athletics at UNCG date back to the 1940s in the days before the university became co-ed. Golfer Nancy Porter, who went on to a successful pro career, is regarded as one of UNCG’s first student-athletes, competing in tournaments on the national level in the late 1940s. In 1963, as the university prepared to go co-ed, UNCG began to formally organize athletic teams. Women’s basketball, under head coach Ellen Griffin, women’s tennis, women’s golf and field hockey were started. LPGA Hall of Famer Carol Mann was on one of the early UNCG women’s golf teams. In 1967, UNCG began men’s athletics and the intercollegiate athletics program received formal recognition from the University. In the fall of 1967, the Spartan was adopted as the program’s mascot. In 1968, UNCG’s men’s teams joined the Dixie Athletic Conference, known today as the USA South Conference on the NCAA Division III level. Women’s teams competed as part of the AIAW early on, with UNCG being one of the lead organizers of the organization. Two of the first men’s sports were basketball and bowling. In 1971, with the emergence of the five-player rule in women’s basketball, UNCG finished fourth in the National Collegiate Tournament. Two years later, the women’s golf team won the AIAW national title – UNCG’s firstever team national crown. Porter coached the squad and future professional golfer Donna Horton White was on the squad. Since then, UNCG has enjoyed a number of successes: • Five national titles in men’s soccer during the 1980s and a runner-up finish in women’s tennis. • An unprecedented five-year move from Division III to Division II to Division I. • A trip to the “Big Dance” – the NCAA men’s basketball tournament – in just its fifth year of Division I status. • Men’s soccer coach Michael Parker and women’s basketball coach Lynne Agee were the first to lead teams to the NCAA tournament in all three divisions. • A baseball squad built from scratch by Mike Gaski that made it to the NCAA tournament in just its fifth season of play. • A men’s soccer program that conquered all comers for two months to become the No. 1 team in the nation in 2004, the beginning of UNCG’s three straight NCAA tournament Round of 16 appearances and four in five years. • Kyle Hines, who became just the sixth player in college basketball history to record 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 300 blocked shots in a career. • Individuals like wrestler Dock Kelly, who overcame birth defects that left him without legs qualifying for the NCAA Championship. • Students like Siggi Eyjolffson, who earned Academic All-American honors three times. From major league pitcher Brian Moehler to MLS champion Alejandro Moreno to LPGA star Becky Morgan, Spartan alumni have gone on to successful careers in sports. That success isn’t just limited to the playing field, either. The late Doug Hamilton was one of the pioneers within MLS and played on the UNCG national championship teams of the 1980s. Eyjolffson returned to his native Iceland and is one of the top people in his native country’s soccer federation, currently serving as their women’s national team head coach. S p a r t a n athletics has had its success stories over the years … and the best is yet to come.
