Brian Gerwig Joins @GW_Volleyball as Assistant Coach
Former Western Kentucky Assistant Joins Staff
April 10, 2013
Gerwig spent last season as a volunteer assistant coach at Western Kentucky, helping the Lady Toppers to their most successful season in the history of the program. Western Kentucky finished with a 33-4 overall record and made the NCAA Tournament for the third straight season, advancing to the second round for the first time in program history.
"We are happy to welcome Brian to GW," said Head Coach Amanda Ault. "He is a very good fit for our program and meshes well with our players and our staff. He comes from a well-respected program at Western Kentucky and will be an asset as we continue to move this program forward in the Atlantic 10."
While at Western Kentucky, Gerwig worked in all aspects of the game with an emphasis on training the defense and blockers. Gerwig coached under 2012 AVCA National Coach of the Year finalist Travis Hudson and helped coach two All-Americans and the two-time Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year, Ashley Potts.
Gerwig also served as the team's video coordinator, responsible for video breakdown and strategy for both Western Kentucky and its opponents.
Prior to his stint at Western Kentucky, Gerwig was the varsity volleyball head coach at Trinity High School in Louisville, Ky., guiding the Rocks to a 17-4 overall record in 2012 and their first state championship since the 2005 season.
