Assistant Coach, University of Michigan-Dearborn
Jamie Wozniak is no stranger to University of Michigan-Dearborn volleyball. After enrolling as a student-athlete from 2002-07, Wozniak transitioned, first, into the role of graduate assistant coach, before securing an assistant coaching spot prior to the 2009 season. Wozniak helped the Wolves to a 12-26 record for the year and also helped mentor five athletes who earned Wolverine Hoosier Athletic Conference honors.
"I love every aspect of the game of volleyball and realized early on that my competitive playing days were numbered due to two ACL knee injuries in high school," said Wozniak. "I found that coaching the sport gives me more satisfaction by watching the players develop that love of the game. By coaching volleyball, I can help others learn to be successful and believe in themselves, and provide a positive role model for young athletes."
"My career goals in this sport," Wozniak continued, "are to coach at a very high competitive level and help build a program into a consistent contender for a championship. I would like to continue to learn about the game and be able to make lasting contributions to strategies, techniques and theories of the game of volleyball."
