IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head volleyball coach Sharon Dingman has announced Adam Rollman will join the Hawkeye staff as a volunteer assistant coach. Rollman will serve as an offensive and defensive assistant.
“We are looking forward to Adam joining our staff,” said Dingman. “Every day our players will see his passion for the sport and his desire to make our team better and help our program achieve the goals we’ve established.”
Rollman graduated from the University of Nebraska in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in international studies and political science. He was a four-year starter on the Nebraska club volleyball team, and he served as the club’s president and floor captain during his senior season.
A native of Norfolk, Neb., Rollman was a student assistant coach at Nebraska Wesleyan in 2011, helping the Prairie Wolves to a 16-12 record. Most recently, he was a practice player and student manager for Nebraska, the defending Big Ten champions, in the spring of 2012.
“I am really excited about joining the Hawkeye volleyball program,” said Rollman. “Coach Dingman has built a foundation for this program and I’m thankful for the opportunity to come here and help Iowa reach new levels in the Big Ten. The coaching staff and the players here have the enthusiasm and drive to make Iowa volleyball great and that is something that I want to be a part of.”
Iowa opens the regular season with the annual Hawkeye Challenge presented by Comfort Suites Aug. 24-25 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City.
