Special Edition--- Anne Kordes discusses her resignation -- MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
ANNE KORDES PRESS CONFERENCE
UofL volleyball coach Anne Kordes held an informal press conference Monday afternoon at the YUM! Practice Facility on campus "The Little YUM" to discuss her decision to resign from her duties at the end of this season.
For Kordes, the decision is two-fold. First, she wants to have another child and needs time off...at least two weeks...to undergo the fertility treatments necessary. Kordes has been trying over the last six months...but due to job requirements...unable to fully undergo the recommended steps. As a single mother, the juggling of raising a daughter and recruit successfully had become an area where a change was needed.
Also, there has been a desire to go into "the family business" with her father Ron Kordes. Ron is heavily involved in the Louisville and regional Volleyball scene...as a long-time head coach at Assumption High School and the OVVC (Ohio Valley Volleyball Center) and the job would allow such perks as having her children able to go to work with her.
A nationwide search is underway to find her successor and Anne revealed that she has already begun to receive calls from coaches about her associate (Alex Wilharm) and assistant coach (Alyssa D'Errico)
