MARQUETTE – Northern Michigan University head volleyball coach Dominic Yoder has been appointed to serve on the NCAA Volleyball Rules Committee.

Yoder will fill a vacancy left on the committee through Sept. 1, 2015. He’ll be eligible for a reappointment to a four-year term at that point.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to have an impact on our sport from a rules standpoint,” Yoder said.

Yoder is in his eighth season at NMU and has 14 years of collegiate coaching experience.

Along with his coaching expertise, Yoder spent three years as a volleyball official for the GLIAC, Michigan Intercollegiate Athletics Association and the Michigan Community College Athletic Association.
