Ryan Platt is the new Eastern Oregon Mountaineers women's volleyball head coach.

The Orofino, Idaho native becomes the first male volleyball head coach in school history.

"I am very pleased with the selection of Ryan as the new head volleyball coach for the Mountaineers.

He is a young coach with a tremendous amount of energy and enthusiasm," stated EOU athletic director Rob Cashell.

Platt spent the past two seasons at Lewis-Clark State College (Idaho) as an assistant in the Warrior program. Last season, Platt helped the Warriors (27-5) to a first-place finish in the Frontier Conference (NAIA) and advanced to the NAIA Region I playoffs.

"This opportunity is a very good fit for me and for Eastern Oregon University," Platt said.

"This is a program that can achieve tremendous things."

Platt brings a wealth of camp and club experience to the Mountaineer family.

Prior to his appointment at L-C State, Platt held the Grangeville (Idaho) High School head coach job for three years and has coached junior club teams throughout Idaho since 1992.

Platt's work with programs during his first year has been impressive.

In the spring of 2000, Grangeville's 14U team went 23-7 and in 1997 his University of Idaho's women's club team led their conference with an impressive 63-18 record.
