Kansas City, Mo. — UMKC Athletics Director Tim Hall announced the hiring of Christi Posey as the new head coach of the Kangaroo volleyball program. Posey has spent the past eleven seasons as the top assistant and recruiting coordinator at the University of Kansas, where she landed the No. 26 ranked class in the nation according to PrepVolleyball.com in 2010.
“We are thrilled to welcome Christi to our athletic family,” Hall said. “Christi has compiled an impressive resume throughout her years of coaching and is an ideal fit for our volleyball program. I am confident that she will develop the type of student-athletes we are looking for and have UMKC competing for Summit League titles year-in and year-out.”
“With the leadership of Tim Hall, his administrative staff, and the returning players, UMKC Volleyball has a chance to become a program in which the University and the Kansas City community can be proud,” Posey said. “It was clear to me from the start of this process that their commitment to academic integrity, athletic excellence and providing a meaningful student-athlete experience were goals of this athletic department. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to lead this program and I am eager to get started.”
