Quincy, head coach Foster part ways after 11 seasons

The longest tenured coach in Quincy program history has been let go.

Quincy announced Monday that effective immediately Hadley Foster would no longer serve as the its men’s volleyball head coach.


Foster in 11 seasons compiled a 151-221 career record and set the program-record for career victories. He also guided the Division II team to a 22-win season in 2011, including an upset victory in the MIVA Tournament quarterfinals for the Hawks’ only postseason win this decade.

The Hawks are 3-12 so far this season and currently on an eight-match conference losing streak. In addition, Quincy is tied with Lindenwood for eighth-place and the final berth to the upcoming MIVA Tournament.

Along with releasing Foster, Quincy announced Monday that Bob Crank will serve as the team’s head coach for the remainder of the season.

Crank is the Quincy women’s volleyball head coach and in the fall guided that program to its first conference tournament appearance since 2011. As a college setter, Crank also helped lead Missouri Baptist to four consecutive NAIA national tournament appearances from 2005-08.

A national search for new men’s volleyball head coach will begin at the end of the 2017 season.
