Volleyball - Mon, May. 10, 2010
The Georgetown College volleyball Tigers will have a new face on the sidelines next season. Dan Kreiger joins the coaching staff as an assistant, replacing Casey Steinbrecher."Dan is a tremendous addition to our staff," GC coach Nick Griffin said. "I feel very fortunate to add an assistant with his background and experience. He is very passionate, competitive and has the personality our players will really connect with. Dan's strengths will help us right away and keep him successful in coaching for years to come."

Kreiger has more than 10 years of experience as a coach, coaching both men and women. And he is happy about his opportunity to coach at Georgetown.
"I am very excited about being a part of the Georgetown College athletic department and volleyball program," Kreiger said. "I am looking forward to working at a school that has such great history and tradition. I want to thank coach Griffin and the administration for the opportunity. I am anxious to get in the gym with such high caliber student-athletes to see what we can accomplish."
Kreiger comes to the Tigers program after serving as a graduate assistant for two years at University of North Carolina Pembroke. Before that he was a head coach at St. Andrews Presbyterian College, and in his second season there helped the team to 16 more wins.
He coached two All-CVAC selections, the CVAC Freshman of the Year, and an Academic All-District III honoree in '06. Kreiger also guided a squad that finished the 2006 season ranked No. 2 nationally in NCAA Division II in digs per game.

Kreiger came to St. Andrews after spending the 2004 season as the head coach of the X-treme 18's of the Western Wake Volleyball Club in Cary, N.C. Kreiger was in charge of recruitment, player evaluations, planning and running practices, and assisting in all tournaments.
Prior to moving to North Carolina, Kreiger coached the men's volleyball team at Pennsylvania State University, Altoona College, for six years. Kreiger spent the first four season's as a player and coach. Under Kreiger's direction, the Lions attended the NIRSA National Championships three times, won the MACVC West Division in 2003, and had three top-10 finishes in the MACVC Championships. Kreiger was responsible for setting up Penn State Altoona's first ever club sports home event and tripling the number of their matches.

While at Penn State Altoona, Kreiger also served as an assistant with the varsity women's volleyball team for five years. With Kreiger's help the Lady Lions were the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference regular season champs in 2001 and runner-ups in 2003.

Kreiger graduated from Penn State Altoona in May of 2003 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Community Human Services.

Kreiger and his wife, Kelley, currently reside in Laurinburg, N.C.
