Off Season Moves

RI's head coach retired so they are looking for a new coach. Dayton is replacing Audrey who is getting married, so we will have a new Assistant Coach. Those are the only two coaching moves I currently know about.

Player-wise, Bri Pittman has left the team and Dayton is looking for a transfer player - either an OH or MB.

SLU is looking for a transfer Setter or OH. They could use a taller setter. They use two setters this past season to start the year and then settled for one of those two. But both were under 5'9".

VCU is looking for a setter transfer. They have had a lot of player turnover the last 3 years or so.

Just when I thought this off season was going to be pretty calm, John Dunning, HC of National Champions Stanford, retires. If they promote from within it won't cause too much shifting of coaches. If they bring someone in from the outside, there will be a domino effect in the coaching ranks. There could be some huge jobs opening up. I'm confident it won't affect Dayton, but it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

LaSalle recruit - they have a 5'10" OH coming next year that was just named the PA Gadorade POY. That's a great recruit for LaSalle. Players name is Sam Graver.

Thanks Becky!
Yeah this will be a good addition to La Salle's team. They got what looks like a really good player from just up the road. Says she played at Parkland High School which would be right near Lehigh and rival Lafayette. Any time you steal a recruit from a local rival is good. Their Freshman OH, Devin Corah, was only 5'9", so you would have to imagine an award winning player with an extra inch could be just as good or better. She might have to wait her turn with both Corah and SR Bryanna Davis both consistent OH all last year. Maybe she will take some swings as a RS or play in the back row at least.

Looks like La Salle also has a 6'2" freshman MB, Reilly Lowe, in this recruiting class from Kentucky.

Stanford hires Kevin Hamby, ILLHead coach. So we now have a BIG10 opening. Creighton HC Booth might be the leading candidate along with DII HC at Concordia in MN. He's won a ton of DII Championships.

Horsmon might get a call, but I think he's not going anywhere. Been there, done that.

Also, Iowa State and Marquette coach probably in the running. Maybe the MI State assistant coach.

I was surprised RI didn't even post this opening until 1-26-17. It closes on 2-8-17. Usually schools post immediately when they know they are having an opening. Maybe there was also an opening in their athletic administration, so they filled it first? I have no idea. But it looks like it might be a while unless they already know who they want and are just fulfilling the requirements to post the opening???

I read the Stanford announcement and learned Hambly lead the nation in blocks as a player at BYU. I remember going to ILL to play an NCAA match several years ago and it was their block that got the best of us. It all makes more sense now. LOL

I bet Kent Miller at SLU applies for the ILL head coaching job. He was a highly thought of assistant at ILL before taking the SLU job. He just hasn't been that successful at SLU. He's been dealt some bad hands starting with an alumni getting shot and killed during the preseason alumni match weekend. And plenty of injuries each year. But he was very well liked at ILL.

Anne Kordes might also go back to SLU if it opened up.

Read this on another message board from an person who watched some matches at the Great Lakes power league up in Chicago. Great Lakes is the volleyball facility that Sports Performance Volletball Club plays out of. We have had several players from SPVC.

UNO girls 17 - has a very nice setter in Sarah Nahas (LaSalle) who has a very good pair of pins (OHs) to feed in Rachel Perinar (TN) and Ali Papesh (Dayton).

Great job Ali! And another LaSalle recruit - this time a setter - looks to be a player. LaSalle bringing in some talent. So good for the A10.

SLU picks up an OH transfer from Pacific. 5'10" Sien Gallop. I think she will be a sophomore but I don't know anything about her.

Illinois has 9 freshmen coming this fall. With the head coaching change I wonder if any are opening up their recruiting. UD was looking for an OH or MB transfer. I wonder if there is any opportunity with any of these players?

Rhode Island HC job posting is closed. Should have an announcement soon. They have an associate head coach that has been there 12 years. He also is recruiting coordinator. I would be surprised if he isn't the leading candidate.

The following schools also have assistant coach openings:

Fordham
Davidson
George Mason
George Washington

Glad UD locked in its new assistant fast, and she was a great player at NE and has played pro overseas. Girls are looking to play pro these days so being recruited by someone who has done it would be very attractive.

Brain freeze on my part. PSU is correct. She was at Louisville last year and became available when Louisville hired a former NE player as their new head coach. I just wasn't thinking when I typed NE.
