[UPDATED with Bio:] Kyle Kvasnicka Resigns as Concordia Women's Volleyball Coach After Arrest for Allegedly Trying to Lure Child for Sex
UPDATE, APRIL 14, 1 P.M.: Concordia University has already removed its online bio of Kyle Kvasnicka, who resigned as head coach of the Irvine private school's women's volleyball team following his arrest on suspicion of Internet Luring of a Child in Colorado.
But a cached version of the bio via Google reveals that Kvasnicka is 30, single and an Irvine resident. He became the team's seventh head coach two seasons ago, after having served four years before as the top assistant to Paula Weishoff, the winningest coach in Concordia history and the 2008 NAIA Coach of the Year.

Kvasnicka's first team as head coach made Concordia's fourth consecutive trip to the NAIA National Championships Semifinals. The bio also reveals:
- At the University of Nebraska, Kvasnicka was an undergraduate volunteer assistant under head coach John Cook, who led his Cornhuskers to NCAA Div. I national titles in 2000 and 2006.
- Kvasnicka has been involved with the U.S. Volleyball High Performance Programs during the past five seasons.
- He also serves as assistant director at the Laguna Beach Volleyball Club.
- He has previously coached Long Beach teen clubs, taking at least one to the Junior Olympics.
Kvasnicka, who coached extensively throughout the Midwest before coming to Southern California, received his bachelor's degree in business administration at the University of Nebraska in 2004.
