A Penn State and coaching legend is retiring.

Thursday morning, Penn State announced that head volleyball coach Russ Rose is stepping down after 43 seasons with the program. He is the winningest coach in all of Division I sports, posting 1,330 victories over the course of his career in State College.

“While I have decided to step into retirement, it has been my pleasure to serve as the head coach of the Penn State women’s volleyball program over the last 43 seasons,” said Rose in a statement. “My time here has provided my family and me many memories and relationships that we will carry with us. I would like to thank the many players, managers and support staff for their dedication, in addition to all of the assistants who helped shape the culture and success of the program.

“I would also like to express my appreciation to Penn State’s administration over the years, from the President’s Office, to the Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics and multiple athletic directors and senior woman administrators who have been responsible for our program and allowed our many players over the last 43 years the opportunity to reach for the stars, both on the court and in the classroom,” continued Rose. “Also, I cannot say enough about the support of the community and the Booster Club, who have been a true blessing. I wish nothing but the best for the future of the program.”

Rose led Penn State to 41 NCAA Tournament appearances, 17 B1G titles, 13 Final Four bids and 7 national championships. The Nittany Lions never had a losing season with Rose at the helm.

Rose’s career winning percentage was .853.
