KLAMATH FALLS, Ore--- The Oregon Tech volleyball team will be led by a new coach in the upcoming 2020 season.

Oregon Tech Athletic Director John Van Dyke announced the hiring of Dr. Ken Murczek on Wednesday. 

Murczek spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach at San Diego State. Murczek was also a men's volleyball player at the same program. 

Murzeck was also the head coach at the University of Charleston and Wake Forest University. At Wake Forest, Murzeck guided the Demon Deacons to a 12-0 start in his first season. That was the best start in Wake Forest history.

He also coached 19 Atlantic Coast Conference all-academic honor roll selections. One team he coached won the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for maintaining a collective 3.4 GPA.

“It is my honor to welcome Coach Murczek to the Hustlin’ Owl family,” said Van Dyke. “I am looking forward to watching our volleyball program flourish under his leadership. With Dr. Murczek’s assortment of experience and expertise, I know he will be a tremendous asset to not only the volleyball team but the entire athletic department. Welcome Ken!”

"I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to lead the Lady Owls women's volleyball team and to work at one of the leading academic institutions on the west coast,” said Murczek.

The Owls will look to rebound after going 15-15 and 8-12 in conference play in 2019.
