UT has announced the hiring of Eve Rackham as the new head coach for Tennessee volleyball today. Rackham has been the assistant coach at North Carolina since 2009, and was named the AVCA Division I Assistant Coach of the Year in 2014.
“I am honored to be named the new head volleyball coach at the University of Tennessee. While I will always cherish my time at the University of North Carolina, I could not be more excited for this opportunity. I look forward to building on the foundation of success laid by Rob Patrick during his 21 years… By accepting the coaching position at the University of Tennessee, I intend to help return the volleyball program to national relevance. Tennessee is a special place with top-notch facilities, tremendous school spirit, strong academics and a tradition of champions. These are all the elements for building a successful program and for helping our players develop as students-athletes and as strong women. I am confident recruits will see the opportunities available to them here, and I look forward to fostering a winning program the community can embrace.”
Welcome to Rocky Top, coach!
