Katrina English, the new Head Coach of Arkansas-Monticello Volleyball, and David Midlick, UAM’s new Head Coach for Women’s Basketball, will have an introductory press conference in the UAM Student Success Center at 11:45 a.m. on Thursday, April 21.

The press conference is open to the media and the public and parking at the UAM Student Success Center is free for those who wish to attend. For those that cannot attend the event in person, a live stream will be available to watch live on the UAM Sports YouTube Page.

UAM Athletics announced English as the new head Volleyball coach on April 1 and Midlick as the new head Women’s Basketball coach on April 19.

English will lead Monticello’s program after spending this past season as the Head Men’s and Women’s Volleyball Coach at Kentucky State University. She led the Men’s Program through their Spring 2021 Covid-19 season and in the Fall 2021 season the Women’s Team finished tied for second in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference with a 15-3 record. English is the sixth Head Volleyball Coach in the program’s history at UAM.

“I am enthusiastic and focused about the opportunity to build with the UAM Family and Community. I am looking forward to fortifying a foundation of winning and all that entails.” said English in her UAM announcement press release.

Midlick most recently served as an Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach at Southeastern Missouri (SEMO) in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. His coaching experience also includes serving as Head Coach of the Austin Peay University Women’s Basketball team (where he first served as a volunteer assistant for Austin Peay Men’s Basketball from 2003 through 2006 to start his college coaching career). He led the Governors to 18 regular season wins in 2019-20, which is the most regular-season wins in program history since the 2003-04 team won 20 regular-season games. Midlick is the 10th Head Women’s Basketball Coach in the program’s history at UAM.

“I want our fans to be proud of the team in the classroom, on the court, and in the community.  I am looking forward to this journey with a great group of student athletes.” Midlick said in his UAM announcement press release.

We look forward to learning more about the newest coaches in UAM Athletics.
