Andy Rynd

Andy Rynd was elevated to Arkansas volleyball’s director of operations in spring of 2022 after serving as a graduate assistant for one season.

Rynd had previously served on the Arkansas staff as a volunteer assistant coach in Jason Watson’s first season at the helm in 2016. Rynd stayed with the team through the 2017-18 slate.

Andy then came back to Fayetteville last fall for the 2021-22 season as a graduate assistant where the team finished 10-8 in conference play and went 20-11 overall. The Hogs embarked on their first postseason journey in eight years in 2021 with an NIVC bid, in which Arkansas advanced to the third round.

Rynd is a 2015 graduate of Bowling Green State University and served one season as the Director of Operations with BGSU’s volleyball program before beginning his first round with the Razorback staff.

“With change comes opportunity, and we are excited to elevate Andy Rynd to our Director of Operations position. Andy, in his second stint with us, will oversee and develop our video and analytics operation,” Watson said. “He has proven to be a relentless learner and we’re excited he’s agreed to remain a part of our staff.”
