The veteran volleyball coach was recently contacted by someone involved in Unity athletics and asked if he would be interested in coaching the varsity volleyball team.

The job was his three days later.

Meyer was officially given the position at CUSD4 School Board meeting March 6. The resignations of head coach Alese Speckhart and assistant coach Rita Speckhart were approved at the board meeting on Dec. 19.

Meyer, 72, lives in Quincy but spent last season at Liberty, guiding his team to a 16-15 record. The Eagles lost in the first round of the Class 1A regional at Western.
