College sports: UC adds men's volleyball program
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The University of Charleston is adding men's volleyball as a varsity sport starting next fall.
Athletic director Bren Stevens said Wednesday a search for a head coach is underway for the school's 18th varsity sport.
The University of Charleston is the first member of the NCAA Division II Mountain East Conference to offer men's volleyball. But since the sport isn't contested on the Division II level nationally, the school will compete in Division I. Earlier this month the school announced it is reinstating its men's track and cross country teams next fall.
