Women's Volleyball Coaching Staff

CAMP DIRECTOR

Dustin Wood 

Head Coach

Dustin Wood

Dustin Wood begins his fifth season at Georgia Southern in 2017 as the Eagles look to continue their ascent in the Sun Belt Conference.

Georgia Southern made its first appearance in the Sun Belt Championship in 2015 after joining the league prior to the 2014 campaign and finished third in the East Division in 2016.

Wood led the Eagles to a Southern Conference Tournament title and NCAA Tourney appearance in his first campaign at Georgia Southern, which was also his first season as the head coach of a women’s program. He now owns a 60-66 record in three years at Georgia Southern.

The 2013 season saw the Eagles capture the SoCon regular-season championship as well, and the squad’s 28 wins tied for the most in a season in school history. Jamie DeRatt and Kym Coley earned first-team all-league honors while Kat Minnerly garnered recognition on the second team. DeRatt was named MVP of the SoCon Tournament, while Coley and Katie Bange got the nod on the all-tourney squad.

A 10-year volleyball coaching veteran, Wood came to Georgia Southern in the summer of 2012 from George Mason, where he spent the previous three seasons – two as an assistant coach on the women's staff and one as an assistant coach on the men’s staff.

As the recruiting coordinator on the women's staff from 2011-12, Wood helped recruit five freshman who all started for the Patriots in 2012. He helped coach three All-Colonial Athletic Association selections, including two-time honoree outside hitter Lana Zonjic, who earned third-team honors in 2011 and second-team accolades in 2012. Wood also aided in freshman Lolade Owokoniran's development en route to an All-Rookie team nod in 2012. He was responsible for directing and assisting with match preparation, scouting, planning practice and defensive systems and blocking schemes.

He recruited five “Fab 50” recruits while on the men's staff under coach Fred Chao and was instrumental in leading the team to the EIVA Semifinals and garnering a number of All-EIVA selections for Mason players. Wood was selected the head coach of the USA Boys Youth Select Continental Team, which took the Bronze Medal at the USA High Performance Championships in Tucson, Ariz., in 2012.

Wood spent six seasons as a coach at East Stroudsburg University and served as the head coach of the Division I men's program from 2006-09. He led the Warriors to EIVA quarterfinal and NCAA Division I Tournament appearances in 2006 and 2007.

After a redshirt season at Ohio State, Wood transferred to East Stroudsburg, where he embarked on a four-year playing career as an outside hitter. He was a three-time captain while leading the team in kills in three seasons. After earning a bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 2003, Wood began working as a coach at East Stroudsburg, serving as both an assistant coach with the women’s team and the associate head coach of the men's team. He was promoted to head coach of the men’s program in 2005.

Dustin and his wife, Shannon, reside in Pooler, with their daughters Etta, Evie, and Everly.

ASSISTANT COACH

 

Kyle Gramit

Kyle Gramit

 

Kyle Gramit joins Georgia Southern volleyball coaching staff for his first season and brings a wealth of playing experience to the Eagles.

Gramit comes to Statesboro after serving as an assistant coach for the Limestone men’s and women’s programs for the last two seasons. He helped the Limestone women to a 19-7 overall record and a 12-6 mark in Conference Carolinas in 2015, and the Saints advanced to the tournament championship match. The Limestone men posted an overall record of 13-11 in 2017 and a 12-6 mark in league play.

Gramit joined the Limestone staff in 2015 after a successful six-year playing career overseas. His list of accomplishments include winning the league championship with Sarkat Volley in 2014 when he was the third leading scorer, winning three major Swedish championships with Falkenberg in 2010-11 and finishing in the top-five in scoring in his league in four seasons. Most recently, the 6-foot-5 Gramit played for Tierp Volley in the Swedish league Elitserien herrar. He was team co-captain and named the top attacker and point scorer in the league at the conclusion of the season while also earning several “Man of the Match” awards throughout the year.

“We are excited to have Kyle join our program,” said Wood. “He has a wealth of experience as a player and a coach to help our program reach new heights. I know his experiences as a high-level player in college and professionally will help our players make some big improvements in their games. He has valuable experience in the past five years that can help our team understand what it takes to be an elite athlete on and off the court. He has already gained the respect and trust of our program, he is ready to hit the ground running and the players are very eager to learn from him. He is extremely positive and a good role model for our kids to look up to, and he will do great things here.”

A 2009 graduate of George Mason University, Gramit ranks in the top-four in blocks, kills, digs and service aces in the Patriot school record books. He was a three-time Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association all-conference outside and right-side hitter, a second-team All-America choice as a junior and selected for the USA Youth National Team that competed in Brazil in 2005.

Gramit has also been involved with the Sports Performance Volleyball Club since 2006. He has worked with kids ages 12-18 at a variety of levels during his tenure there, including head coach of two teams which competed in national tournaments and several assistant coaching positions.
