ATLANTA (Jan. 18) — Shannon Tuttle was added to the Georgia Tech volleyball coaching staff head coach Shelton Collier announced Monday.
Tuttle, a standout setter at the University of Notre Dame, joins Collier’s staff after serving three years at Kent State University. While at Kent, she served as recruiting coordinator and coached the setters, including an all-Mid American Conference selection. Prior to her time at Kent, Tuttle spent a year at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and helped the Panthers to a school-best 16-15 record.
“Shannon was my first choice when I evaluated all the young up and coming assistant coaches at various schools across the country,” said Collier. “She is bright, works hard, has a very positive demeanor, and will really help our program in so many ways. I am sure our players will respond very well to her.”
Tuttle will assume the role as offensive coordinator at Georgia Tech, working with the setters and hitters, and will also be a primary recruiter.
A native of Reseda, Calif., Tuttle graduated from Notre Dame in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. She competed for the Fighting Irish from 1992 through 1995 and as a junior, she was named to the all-Midwestern Region Team. She finished her career with 1,727 assists, the third-best total in Notre Dame history.
Tuttle, 24, is single and is currently pursuing her master’s degree in sports admnistration.
