Coach Brydon Steps Down (1-2-19)
After leading UW-Oshkosh for one season, Will Brydon has decided to step down as Division I head coach and program director.

"Stepping away from UW-Oshkosh Men's Volleyball was an extremely difficult decision, but it is one that I know is best for me and my family right now," said Brydon. "I want to express my sincere thanks to the many people that helped me on my journey to the helm of the program: the current program athletes, our current and former coaches at all levels, and the amazing alumni. Oshkosh Volleyball is a family, and time away from your family is never easy, but I know they will continue to ascend to great heights, and when they do, I'll be cheering them on, even if I can't be on the sideline for it."

Brydon accomplished many things as a player and coach for the Titans. While wearing the black and gold he was the 2011 and 2012 Wisconsin Volleyball Conference Division II State Championship Most Valuable Player and a 2012 WVC Division II honorable mention selection. Also in 2012 he was named a National Collegiate Volleyball Federation Division III honorable mention All-American after helping the Titans to the Division III National Championship.

After taking home a national title he came back to mentor the Titans Division II team as head coach for three seasons accumulating a 136-28-2 overall record. Winning nearly 82 percent of the matches he coached, he led the Titans to three straight WVC Division II regular season and state championship titles, a NCVF Division III national championship runner-up finish in 2015 and two fifth place performances in 2016 and 2017. Those teams were filled with student-athletes that garnered all-conference and All-American honors.

"I truly loved every minute of working with those amazing guys," said Brydon when asked about his time as the Division II head coach.

Last season Brydon led the Division I team to a 39-12 record while winning the WVC Division I regular season conference and state championships. The Titans finished third at the Las Vegas Open, fifth at the Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Championship and ninth at the NCVF Division I National Championship. It was the tenth straight year that the Titans finished ninth or better at the end of the year tournament. Individual accomplishments for UW-Oshkosh were highlighted by Nick Davies and Peter Nordel who were each named honorable mention All-American.

For his work at the high school level he was named a 2016 AVCA Thirty Under 30 Award Winner. That award was created in 2009 to honor up-and-coming coaching talent at all levels of the sport, and in 2016 was expanded for high school coaches. At the time Brydon was the head coach at Winneconne High School, a position now held by one of his former players Alex Harty.

The UW-Oshkosh men's volleyball team wishes Coach Brydon and his growing family the best of luck and can't thank him enough for nearly ten years of dedication.
