Nebraska head coach John Cook released a statement after he spoke about the situation at the Big Ten Volleyball Media Days.

Despite talks of Caffey returning to the team for a final super senior season, Cook said she ultimately decided to enter the transfer portal.

“Kayla was a great Husker. While we anticipated having her be a part of this year’s team, I respect that this is a personal decision for her. We wish her the best going forward,” Cook said in the statement.
