East Carolina athletics director Jon Gilbert announced Thursday the contract of head volleyball coach Julie Torbett will not be renewed.

Torbett compiled a 109-107 record in seven seasons with the Pirates, part of a 447-392 career mark. She coached previously at Winthrop and UNC Asheville.

“We are grateful to Julie Torbett for leading the Pirate volleyball program over the past seven years and appreciate her contributions,” Gilbert said in a statement. “I have asked assistant coach Moneshia McKenney to lead the program in an interim role effective today. We will begin a national search for the next leader of our volleyball program in the near future.”
