Volleyball Head coach Craig Letourneau plans to resign

Craig Letourneau, the head coach for both the men’s and women’s volleyball teams, said he is resigning from his position effective July 1. 

The 35-year-old said he accepted a job to coach the Wheaton College women’s volleyball team and will start there on August 15.

Letourneau said the main reason for his departure is his hour and a half, sometimes two-hour commute to work. Letourneau lives in Connecticut, with his wife and two small children.

In his four years at Emerson, Letourneau led the 2009 women’s volleyball team to a Great Northeast Athletic Conference Championship, and built the inaugural men’s volleyball team three years ago.
