Megan Clayberg says she will be getting the best of both worlds. Last week, Clayberg announced she was giving up her post as head volleyball coach at Central College to devote more time to her children. She will remain on the Central staff though as junior varsity coach. She says it’s a win-win situation as she still gets to be involved with the team, and also gets to spend more time with her family.In 12-years as head coach, Clayberg turned Central into a national powerhouse. The Dutch won three straight national championships from 1998 to 2000. The demands of the job began taking their toll and taking her away from home, something a lot of women coaches have to confront during their careers. She says the time demands of coaching have increased and it was getting too difficult to be a mom and a coach too. She is confident about the program’s future with her brother-in-law Clayberg taking the reigns. She says she’s thankful for the experience and says Kent Clayberg will do a great job.
