Rebecca Rudnick joins West Virginia's coaching staff after serving as an assistant coach at Liberty for the last four seasons.

After serving on Liberty Head Volleyball Coach Shane Pinder's staff for the last four years, Rebecca Rudnick has taken a position as an assistant coach with the volleyball program at West Virginia. Rudnick will serve as WVU's recruiting coordinator, in addition to working with the Mountaineers' middle blockers.

"I am excited for Becky and this opportunity to further her career as a coach," Pinder said. "We want to thank her for her commitment and tireless effort to move our program to new levels. Her impact on our program both as a player and a coach run much deeper than the records and championships she has helped produce at Liberty. She will be greatly missed on a daily basis but we know that it is the right move at the right time for her career. We wish her all the best moving forward."

Rudnick, a 2005 graduate of Liberty, spent six total seasons (2006-07, 2011-14) on staff at Liberty. While serving as a graduate assistant in 2007, Rudnick helped Liberty post a program-record 27 wins (27-9) and capture its fourth conference crown and NCAA appearance. As a full-time assistant from 2011 through 2014, Rudnick helped guide the Lady Flames to three 20-win seasons, two Big South regular-season titles, two conference tournament championships and two NCAA Regional appearances.

During her six seasons on staff at Liberty, the Lady Flames went 117-76, including 63-19 in Big South regular-season matches.

A four-year letterwinner for the Lady Flames (2001-04), Rudnick was part of the 2001 squad which won the Big South Championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. She currently ranks 11th in program history with 1,164 career kills. Rudnick was a Big South All-Conference first team honoree as a junior in 2003, and earned mention as a Big South All-Tournament team selection in 2004.
