LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Husker Volleyball coach John Cook announced he promoted volunteer assistant Kelly Hunter to a full-time assistant coach. Cook made the announcement on Wednesday.

“Kelly has been an important part of Nebraska Volleyball for eight years, and we’re happy to announce her promotion to a full-time assistant coach on our staff,” Cook said. “She is one of the best leaders I’ve ever been around, and she knows what it takes to be a national champion, which only benefits our student-athletes.”

Hunter began her career with the Huskers two years ago after her professional career overseas. Hunter was a two-time All-American and helped the Huskers to national championships in 2015 and 2017.

During Hunter’s time as a Husker, she earned many awards, including National Player of the Year.

“I am beyond thrilled to begin my full-time coaching career at Nebraska,” Hunter said. “There is no greater dream than to coach for my alma mater and remain a part of Husker Nation.”
