JENNY MAURER | ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH
Head coach Todd Dagenais announced the addition of Jenny Maurer to his coaching staff in January of 2016. In her role as the associate head coach, she serves as the recruiting coordinator, prepares the offensive game plan and works with the setters.
In two seasons with the Knights, Maurer has helped the UCF attack maintain a season hitting percentage over. 230. The Knights posted back-to-back 20-win seasons, including a trip to the 2017 National Invitational Volleyball Championship. Maurer has mentored AVCA All-Region selections Kia Bright and Jale Hervey during her first two seasons in Orlando.
Maurer joined the Knights after spending the last five seasons as the head volleyball coach at Bradley University (Ill.).
Maurer brought with her 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.
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.
"I'm very appreciative of the experience that I had at Bradley University, and I thank Dr. Chris Reynolds for his support," she said. "I know that my experiences there made me the coach that I am and afforded me this opportunity that I have at UCF."
Prior to her stint in Peoria, she served as the head coach at Lehigh University. 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 NCAA All-America student-athlete at Washington University in St. Louis, has a proven track record of improving the programs that she has worked with.
Maurer and her husband, Todd, have two children: son Hudson and daughter Chaney.
