Ventura College women's volleyball coach Mandy Rodriguez cited family reasons when she resigned last month after seven seasons.
"I am at a place in my life where I am excited about watching my daughters grow up and being actively involved in their lives and extra curricular endeavors," said Rodriguez in a statement. "I have been very lucky to be a part of an amazing school and athletics program and for that I will always be thankful."
Rodriguez guided Ventura to a 72-74 record and the 2005 WSC North title after taking over from Miki McFadden in 2005. The Pirates were 4-18 last fall, its lowest win total since failing to win four matches four straight seasons from 1986-89.
"We are very appreciative of Mandy and her seven years of service at the College," Cowen said.
