The Citadel will not renew the contract of volleyball coach Amir Khaledi and will begin a national search for his replacement, athletic director Jim Senter said Monday.

Khaledi took over as the Bulldogs’ head coach in 2011 after serving as an assistant for four years. He also was head coach at Charleston Southern from 1985-92.
The Citadel was 8-26 overall this season, with an 0-16 mark in the Southern Conference. “We are grateful for the hard work and dedication that Coach Khaledi has put into the volleyball program at The Citadel,” said Senter. “He has always had the best interests of The Citadel and his players in mind. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Khaledi’s contract ends on Dec. 31. “I am thankful to The Citadel for the opportunity to be part of the volleyball program,” said Khaledi. “I wish the team was more successful, but I understand the decision that was made.”
