BOWLING GREEN — The Bowling Green State University Board of Trustees has named Fran Voll of Marion and formerly of Delphos as the its next chair.

The former Falcon associate athletic director and head of the Falcon Club, Voll was the BGSU women’s basketball coach from 1984-91, leading the Falcons to two undefeated Mid-American Conference season, three regular season MAC Championships, four MAC Tournament titles and four trips to the NCAA Tournament.

“I welcome the opportunity to continue my service to my alma mater and look forward to working with the board to move the university forward,” Voll said.

Voll is a member of the BGSU Athletic Hall of Fame, the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame, the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame and the St. John’s Hall of Fame. He was also named one of BGSU’s 100 Most Prominent Alumni.

Voll gave up coaching to return to Marion, becoming principal of his alma mater, Marion Catholic High School. He retired in 2011.

Now active in the Marion community, he has served as president of the Marion Rotary Club.
