(Bradenton, Fla., Feb. 16, 2016) – State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) has named Angie Byrd as the new Head Volleyball Coach/Campus Recreation Coordinator. She will start work March 21.

Byrd has enjoyed success in her coaching career with National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II. She has accumulated a career record of 258-121 as a head coach.
