This is Kaylee Koetter’s first season with 1st Allianace. Kaylee was hired as an assistant coach at UIC by head volleyball coach Justin Ingram in April 2017. She arrived in Chicago after most recently serving in a similar role at Southern Illinois University.
At SIU Koetter was integral in planning the program's recruiting efforts and organizing summer camps. She also handled day-to-day office operations for the Salukis.
Prior to her stint in Carbondale, Koetter was a valuable member of the staff at the University of Tampa, her alma mater, from 2013-14 and 2015-17.
