Gleason Returns as Volleyball Assistant Coach

Assistant Coach "Excited" to Continue at Yale

NEW HAVEN -- The Yale Volleyball program will have a familiar face back in the quest for another Ivy League title.  

Don Gleason will be returning as an assistant coach for the Yale.  In 2012, during Gleason's first season in New Haven, the Bulldogs became only the season team in Ivy League history to finish a conference season at 14-0.

"Donny brings great enthusiasm and volleyball expertise to the team each day, and we're lucky to have him back for another season," Yale head coach Erin Appleman said. 

Last year, Gleason often took an active role in practices and pre-match warmups while coaching, in addition to his team administrative duties.

"I'm excited to be back at Yale for another season with the girls and coaching staff," Gleason said. "With the talent we return, as well as our new additions, we are committed to having another successful year."

The Bulldogs open the season at home against the University of Missouri on Sept. 6.
