Marc Eberle Named Women’s Head Volleyball Coach at Chatham

PITTSBURGH (December 30, 2011)... Chatham’s Marc Eberle has accepted the women’s head volleyball coach position to begin in the 2012 spring semester. Eberle joined Chatham’s team as the assistant volleyball coach in the beginning of the 2011 school year.

The administration is confident in Eberle as he provides an experienced background and a familiarity to Chatham.

“We are very excited to add Marc Eberle as our new Head Volleyball Coach,” said Stanley Vieira, Athletic Director at Chatham. “He brings a drive and great work ethic. I fully expect that Coach Eberle will have the Chatham Volleyball program on the President Athletic Conference map in no time. We expect big things from Marc and are looking forward to seeing how he can help guide our team.”

In the new year, Eberle hopes to improve Chatham’s 1-28 overall record with a full returning roster. Already familiar with the lady Cougars, the transition will run smoothly.

"This is going to be another step in our rebuilding process at Chatham,” said Eberle. “I have a solid core group coming back this season, without having lost any seniors, who can become key role players for the younger players on our team.”

Eberle does not play the blame game when it comes to the Cougars losing record. He plans to refocus his players and win big in the 2012-2013 season.

"I plan on having a competitive team who is looking to surprise some teams in the PAC,” said Eberle. “The biggest enemy for us right now is ourselves. If we take care of our side, we will have a greater chance to win any game."

Eberle comes to Chatham from St. Vincent College where he played varsity volleyball for his freshman year. Eberle helped to form the Men’s Club team at St. Vincent. He then served as the Bearcats’ student assistant coach for the women’s volleyball team in 2010.

He graduated from St. Vincent in 2010 with a Liberal Arts degree with a concentration in physical therapy and minor in psychology.

Eberle is a native to Penn Hills where he also played volleyball for four years. He was named 2006 all-section team and was a three-time section champion.
