MOORHEAD, Minn. (12/20/18)---Tim Mosser, the winningest coach in Concordia volleyball history, has announced that he will resign his position as head coach effective today. Mosser coached the Cobbers for 26 years and was the longest tenured active coach in the MIAC.

"It's time for me to move on with opportunities to teach and to spend more time with my family," Mosser commented about the decision. "I have been blessed to have 26 wonderful years as head coach at Concordia coaching the sport I love. I am so grateful to all the tremendous student/athletes I have coached and all the assistants I have had along the way."  

Mosser started coaching the Cobbers in 1993 and finished his career with 457 overall wins and 184 MIAC victories. He is the winningest coach in program history. He led Concordia to two conference regular season championships and four MIAC tournament titles. Mosser also helped the Cobbers advance to 15 MIAC playoff appearances and eight NCAA Tournament berths.    

Mosser was named the MIAC Coach of the Year in three different decades in 1995, 2006, 2011 and was voted the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Central Region Coach of the Year twice in his career.

"I would like to thank Tim for his tremendous commitment to Concordia and the dedication to the program that he showed throughout his career," Concordia Athletic Director Rachel Bergeson said. "Tim developed Concordia into one of the top programs in the region during his time. The championships and accolades made the team one of the most successful in Cobber athletics history."

Mosser's top season came in 2011 when he guided the team to the MIAC regular season and tournament championships. The Cobbers went on to host the NCAA Regional Tournament for the first time in school history and advanced to the regional final for the second time in four seasons.

Mosser also helped Concordia run off a streak of 63 consecutive weeks being ranked in the Top 25 of the nation which, at that time, was a record for any team in the history of the MIAC.

A national search for Mosser's successor will begin after the start of the New Year.
