Bowling Green State University and Volleyball Head Coach Danijela Tomic agreed to a three-year contract extension earlier this morning.

“Coach Tomic represents everything that is great about Bowling Green State University,” Director of Athletics Derek van der Merwe said. “She embraces campus and its faculty, staff, and students. She embraces the community of alumni, donors, and fans. She is committed to the total development of her student-athletes. We are going to raise many more banners in the Stroh Center under her leadership and will all be there to celebrate with her.”

This past season, BGSU Volleyball went 22-10, including wins over Tennessee and Mississippi State.

The Falcons also went on to defeat Ball State in the 2022 Mid-American Conference Championship for their second MAC title in three years.

In her career with the orange and brown, Tomic has amassed a 350-197 overall record, with a 128-57 record in MAC play. BGSU has also won three MAC regular season titles and three MAC tournament titles.

For Tomic, this move reminds her that Bowling Green is a special place to work.

“Serving as BGSU’s Head Volleyball Coach for 11 years has been an honor,” Tomic said. “I am thrilled to continue serving in the same role, in the community, and with the people I love. I am also happy that our coaching staff remains the longest-tenured staff in the MAC.

BGSU Volleyball continues on with their offseason program, with the next open practice set for March 24 at the Stroh Center at 1 p.m.
