JENNY MAURER | ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH
Jenny is heading into her second season with the UCF women’s volleyball team. Maurer brings a combined nine years of collegiate head coaching experience to UCF. With her background and qualifications, she has been tabbed as the associate head coach.
"One of my absolute favorite aspects of coaching is being a role model and helping to develop young women as leaders," she said. "As a result, I will be able to focus even more on building relationships with our student-athletes in order to bring out their best both as individuals and as a team."
Dagenais noted that Maurer possessed the desired leadership and experience for the position.
"As a long time standing head coach, Jenny has all of those tangible items that the search committee was looking for. We felt she was absolutely the best person for the position at this point in our program and its needs," Dagenais said.
In her first three seasons at Bradley, she led the Braves to 34 wins, the program's most victories in a three-year stretch since the 2005 season. In 2012, Maurer led Bradley to the first 5-0 start in program history, and in 2013, the Braves advanced to the Missouri Valley Tournament for the first time since 2005.
Prior to her stint in Peoria, she served as the head coach at Lehigh. During her four years with the Mountain Hawks, Maurer improved her squad's record each season and coached Lehigh into the four-team Patriot League Tournament for the first time since 2003 with a 7-7 conference record in 2009. She improved her squad's RPI by 130 spots during her four-year tenure.
Maurer, a two-time All-America student-athlete at Washington University, has a proven track record of improving the programs that she has worked with. Dagenais looks for her to continue that trend with the Knights.
Maurer and her husband, Todd, have two children: son Hudson and daughter Chaney.
