Texas A&M Volleyball coach Laurie Corbelli has resigned from the job she has held since 1993, the athletic department announced Tuesday afternoon.

The move comes only two days on the heels of the Aggies finishing up their 2017 campaign, which they ended on a three-match win streak. They won nine of their last ten sets but still went 10-15 on the season and 7-11 in SEC play.

Corbelli and her husband John teamed up to lead the Aggies to 20 NCAA tournament appearances in their 25 years at the helm of the program, winning at a .673 clip in that span.

"John and I have been incredibly honored to serve Texas A&M for 25 amazing years," Corbelli said in a statement. "We would like to thank John David Crow, Lynn Hickey and Wally Groff for bringing us to Aggieland in 1993. And, of course, to our remarkable current and former athletes and staff, we express our utmost gratitude and heartfelt thanks for your loyalty, your excellence, and your passion for becoming the best you can be. Gig 'em, Aggies!"

Corbelli enjoyed instant success when the Aggies made the jump to the SEC as well, going 77-33 in conference games over those six years and claiming the SEC championship in 2015.
