B.J. Wagy will be stepping down as the head coach of the Iowa Wesleyan volleyball team after five years. Wagy coached her last season for the school this fall, and will step down from both the volleyball team and her position as the Assistant Athletic Director.

“I am very thankful to Iowa Wesleyan and the community for their support over the last five years,” Wagy said in a press release by the University. “I will forever cherish the relationships I’ve made with my athletes and colleagues. Iowa Wesleyan, the athletic department, and specifically the volleyball team, will always be a part of my life. I am a proud alum and I wish nothing but the absolute best for this institution as it moves forward.”

Wagy is coming off her most successful year as IW head coach. The Tigers went 10-19 overall and 7-10 in SLIAC play.

As an administrator, Wagy’s duties included Assistant Athletic Director and Compliance Officer. She was also instrumental in IW’s partnership with the Southeast Iowa Special Olympics as the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Adviser.

“It has been a pleasure to work with B.J. during her time at Iowa Wesleyan,” Athletic Director Derek Zander said in a statement. “We are grateful for the dedication she has shown to her student-athletes over the past five years. We look forward to building on the success of the volleyball program as a national search for a head coach will begin immdediately.”
