Southeastern Director of Athletics Keith Baxter has announced that Brianna Barry will take over the reins of the Savage Storm volleyball program.
Barry assumed the role of interim head coach when her former boss Jenn King accepted the head coach position at Nova Southeastern, and she will continue in that capacity moving forward.
"I am truly excited to become the head coach at Southeastern," said Barry, "And I am looking forward to continue the progress that Jenn and Dan King accomplished with the program."
"Without those two coaches," Barry continued, "I would not have been introduced to Southeastern Volleyball and I am extremely grateful that they gave me the opportunity to join their staff last year and I am now humbled by the opportunity to take over the program."
"We are excited to have Brianna Barry joining the Southeastern family," said Director of Athletics Keith Baxter, "She has done an outstanding job of handling the transition period and moving into the offseason. Brianna is an excellent addition to the SE staff and possesses the tools to take the volleyball program forward."
Barry joined the Storm volleyball program prior to the 2013 season as a graduate assistant.
That move was on the heels of a three-year stint playing professionally in Switzerland for Volleyball Franches-Montagnes, serving as captain for the third season.
She also served as an assistant coach for VFL 1ere Ligue Nationale for one season, wrapping that in April 2013.
Prior to her professional career she was four-year starter at Florida State where as a senior in 2009 she was the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, a Second Team All-American and the ACC Scholar Athlete of the Year all while also serving as the team's co-captain.
Barry earned her degree in sports management with a business minor from Florida State in 2009.
