Georgetown College assistant volleyball coach Kevin Ulmer has been named head coach for Bethel College in Mishawaka, IN. The Pilots were 18-16 this past season and 8-10 in the Mid-Central College Conference.

"Kevin was a great asset this past season," said Tiger coach Nick Griffin. "His strengths fit perfectly with our program and coaching staff. It's unfortunate the turnover we've had over the past three seasons, but it speaks volumes of the program here at Georgetown."

Griffin's first assistant, Casey Steinbrecher moved on as an assistant at NCAA Division I James Madison University, Dan Krieger is at NCAA Division II Lockhaven University and now Ulmer is beginning his new role.

"I'm excited about this opportunity. It was great being at Georgetown and having the chance to learn from a place with such a strong program and tradition," Ulmer said. "God has truly opened a door for me and my family at Bethel. It has been nothing but a blessing, and we look forward to starting something exciting there."

It is not his first head coaching job, before GC he spent four seasons as varsity coach at Chattanooga Christian School. Ulmer has a passion for the game and wanting to teach and guide young athletes to do their best in every aspect of life.

"Kevin will provide vision and bring new energy to the volleyball program," said BC Athletic Director Jody Martinez. "He brings a great knowledge to the game and will motivate the team to be the best on- and off-the-court."

Ulmer starts his new position Monday.

"We wish him the best and who knows, down the road, maybe Georgetown and Bethel will have an opportunity to play each other," Griffin said.
