Former University of Nebraska middle blocker Amanda Gates has been named volunteer assistant coach with the Creighton volleyball program, coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth announced Wednesday.
Gates' primary responsibilities will be helping with practices — specifically training middle blockers — as well as some administrative tasks. She fills the role held by Mike Weber last season and joins Angie Oxley Behrens, Tom Mendoza and Booth on the staff.
A native of Columbus, Neb., Gates competed at Nebraska from 2005 through 2008. She participated in 82 matches, accumulating 307 kills, 216 blocks, 84 digs and 16 aces while hitting .296.
