KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The UMKC volleyball rounded out their staff for the 2018 season with the hiring of Will McCall, head coach Christi Posey announced earlier this week.
“I would like to thank Coach Posey, Coach Jones and the entire volleyball team for giving me the opportunity to work with this program,” said McCall. “I look forward to working with our student-athletes and helping them grow on and off the court.”
“I have great respect for what these coaches have done at UMKC and the culture they have created. I am excited to learn from them as a coach and mentor.”
McCall heads to UMKC after serving as a first-year assistant coach for Western New Mexico in the 2017 season. Prior to his stint at Western New Mexico, McCall held a graduate assistant position for the Carthage College men’s volleyball team.
Formerly, McCall spent four years playing at the collegiate level for Lewis University. He compiled 86 kills, 15 assists, seven service aces, 83 digs and 19 blocks in competing in 88 sets.
“Will brings a great passion and love for coaching volleyball,” commented Posey. “His experience at numerous levels with a wide variety of athletes will make his transition to UMKC smooth. We believe his enthusiasm and willingness to facilitate in many aspects of the program will translate into a successful union for Will professionally and our current team. We’re eager to get started.”
The Roos open up the 2018 campaign with the UMKC Invitational on Aug. 24, where the team will square off with South Dakota State and Western Michigan to kick off the event. Season tickets for the 2018 season are now on sale and can be purchased online through the team’s website or by calling 844-UMKC-FAN.
