Harris Hired as Assistant Volleyball Coach


Pittsburg State head volleyball coach Jenny Mueller completed her staff with the hiring of two-time All-American Paula Harris as an assistant coach for the Gorillas.

Harris comes to Pittsburg after spending two seasons as a graduate assistant coach at Division I Texas Christian University. While with the Horned Frogs, Harris assisted in all aspects of the program, primarily opponent scouting, video breakdown for player development and planning team travel.

While in Texas, she also coached with the Texas Advantage club team, serving as the head coach for West 15 club and an assitant for the West 16 club. She also served as the camp director for the Prentice Lewis Volleyball Camp and has been an instructor at several camps, including Wichita State, North Texas and Central Missouri.

Perhaps Harris' best experience comes from her experience playing for the Central Missouri Jennies from 2008-2011. A middle blocker, Harris was a two-time AVCA All-America selection and a four-time All-MIAA selection. She finished her career as the all-time top point scorer for the Jennies. She led the team to four NCAA Tournament appearances, including Elite Eight appearances in 2010 and 2011.

Harris graduated from Central Missouri in 2012 with a bachelors of science in physical education in 2012 and earned her masters degree in liberal arts from Texas Christian.

"I'm very excited to have Paula with us," Mueller said. "She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our program and an excitement to coach and train. As a two time All-America dominating middle in the MIAA, Paula helped lead the Jennies to back-to-back Elite Eight appearances. In addition to her very successful playing career, her experience as a graduate assistant with a Division I program has helped expand her knowledge of the different positions in the game. Paula knows what it takes to be successful, not only in this conference, but at the national level. We look forward to the seeing the strides our team will make with her on board."
