MILWAUKEE -- Alverno College Director of Athletics Jessica Ott has announced that Dan Dresen has been named head coach of the Inferno's golf program.

"I am excited to announce Dan as our head golf coach," said Ott. "His experience in golf tournaments and knowledge of the game will elevate our golf program. The golf program will do great things under his leadership."

Dresen has been on the Alverno staff since 2015 when he joined as an assistant volleyball coach.

"Golf has been a passion of mine since the first time I picked up a club," said Dresen. "My grandfather taught me how to golf when I was about 10 years old, and I have played on a regular basis since then. I have competed in a few tournaments throughout the years and am working to compete in more in the coming years."

Dresen inherits a program that is just four years young and finished eighth at the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Championship this past season.

"I feel blessed that I get to coach both volleyball and golf at Alverno College. It is very rare that you get to share your passion for two sports at the collegiate level," added Dresen, who will enter his third season on the Alverno volleyball coaching staff.

Dresen was a four-year member of the men's volleyball team at Quincy University, including a team captain his senior campaign, where he earned his bachelor's degree in graphic design.

He served as co-head coach of Durham University's men's volleyball team from 2011-12 and received his master's in business management at the English university in 2012.

In addition to his duties at Alverno, Dresen is currently an assistant director and lead coach at Wisconsin Juniors Volleyball Club.
