Eastern Oregon volleyball coach Sharon Campbell has announced her resignation, effective June 15.

"With teaching as my greatest strength, an opportunity presented itself that I could not pass up," Campbell said. "I love teaching kids and this opportunity provides me with new and exciting challenges."

Campbell will teach at an elementary school in Texas.

Campbell led Eastern back to the Cascade Collegiate Conference playoffs after a five-year absence in 2001. Her best season was in 1987, when the Mountaineers lost in the semi-finals of the NAIA District 2 playoffs, ending with a 30-16 record.

"I am very sorry that we are losing Sharon," Eastern athletic director Rob Cashell said. "I have a tremendous amount of respect for her as a coach and educator. I will value the friendship we have developed over my brief tenure and wish her nothing but the best."

In Campbell's two stints with Eastern, covering nine years, she complied an overall record of 122-161 (.431). Campbell was also 85-105 (.447) in seven years as women's basketball coach.

After being hired in 1986 to coach women's basketball, Campbell took over the reigns of the volleyball team in 1987. She coached both teams for the next three season before moving on to Cal State-Hayward. She returned to the Grande Ronde Valley in 1996, where she has coached volleyball until now.

A search for a new volleyball coach will begin immediately.
