Greg McGarity Hires Lizzy Stemke to Lead Georgia Women's Volleyball Program

Less than four months into his tenure as the athletic director at his alma mater, Greg McGarity has made his first head coaching hire, bringing in Nebraska assistant coach Lizzy Stemke to guide the Georgia women's volleyball team.

A former two-time AVCA all-American player at Wisconsin, Coach Stemke spent two seasons as an assistant in Chapel Hill before taking up residence in Lincoln, where she served as co-recruiting coordinator, offensive coordinator, setter trainer, video coordinator, and academic and community involvement liaison.

Coach Stemke will be the sixth head coach of the Bulldog volleyball team since the program was started in 1978, which raises the question, "What the heck are we expecting of our volleyball program if we're changing coaches every five years and four months?"

By the way, Coach Stemke began her coaching career as a volunteer assistant at Central Florida in 2003. While she was there, Coach Stemke was the co-founder and a clinic coordinator for "Team Orlando." You don't reckon she still has friends at UCF who might be able to offer some insights to her new employer regarding the Knights' Liberty Bowl preparations, do you?
