The legendary US female volleyball player Jordan Larson resigned as a volunteer coach as Texas’ NCAA season begins.
Larson, the former Nebraska Husker, had resigned from her position as a volunteer assistant for the Texas volleyball program. According to reports, the legendary US National Team player, MVP of the last Olympics, quit the job for personal reasons.
The news went under the radar but, in January, the three-time Olympic medalist and three-time All-American for Nebraska joined the Longhorn staff. Larson was hired to take Tonya Johnson’s place as a full-time assistant coach. Most likely the most accomplished outside hitter in US volleyball history spent the last playing season in the Athletes Unlimited league in her home country after whose conclusion she moved to Italy’s Vero Volley Monza, helping the club enter the Serie A finals for the first time ever. It’s not known whether or not a 35-year-old player will resume her activities on the court.
Texas, ranked No. 2 in the AVCA preseason poll, kick off their campaign against No. 7 Ohio State, tonight.
