After helping the Middle Tennessee volleyball program begin its impressive run of six consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances as a player, former Blue Raider standout Quan Scott has joined the staff as an assistant coach in 2012.
"With having such a young team coming in next year, we felt it was important to bring in someone who was familiar with our system and the way we do things," Peck said. "Quan has a very high volleyball IQ, and she's been very impressive in her six years working camps for us. She's exactly what we were looking for. "
"It's very exciting for me to come back and see all the changes," Scott said. "I'm back to not only help carry on the tradition that we started, but to improve upon it."
Scott is the only Blue Raider in history to have earned a spot on three consecutive All-Sun Belt Tournament teams, helping the Blue and White to the program's second and third NCAA Tournament appearances in 2006 and 2007. The Bakersfield, Calif., native was especially important in 2007, hitting .380 and averaging 1.05 blocks per game to help lead MT to a 35-3 record and an appearance in the Penn State Regional.
Scott joins the program after a decorated professional career in Finland, Croatia and Norway.
