USC has hired a women’s volleyball coach and if you thought things might be different under Mike Bohn, think again.
Brad Keller, who was associate head coach at UCLA, will be the new women’s volleyball coach.
So no big-name hire, which continues the trend under Lynn Swann and Keller definitely will not command a huge salary. Being affordable or a former USC assistant was the Swann model and it’s disappointing Bohn continued that for a program with the historic success of USC women’s volleyball.
Maybe more perplexing, Keller has mostly coached men’s volleyball. He was a men’s assistant at UCLA for six seasons and a men’s assistant at USC from 2007-10.
He might still do a good job at USC. But he doesn’t seem like a game changer. And no backflips on twitter over the hire from the administration, unlike when USC hired Donte Williams.
