BRANDY HUSKEY | ASSISTANT COACH
Brandy Huskey will begin her third season as an assistant coach at Texas Tech in 2018 after helping guide the 2017 Red Raiders to their best season since 2001. Huskey, a Red Raider volleyball alum, was named to Tony Graystone’s inaugural staff in 2016.
Huskey, who began her collegiate playing career as a setter and defensive specialist for the Red Raiders in 2010 and 2011, works with the same positions now as a coach while also coordinating video and the program’s community service efforts.
Before returning to Lubbock, Huskey served as an assistant coach for Houston Baptist University in 2015. While at HBU, she worked with the setters and defensive specialists, helping the Huskies starting setter Kayla Armer to 1,217 assists. Her total was the 10th-most in a single-season in HBU history. On the defensive side, the Huskies recorded 1,788 digs in 2015, with five players posting at 280 digs or more.
Before HBU, Huskey spent a year as a volunteer assistant coach at Houston. Huskey assisted with team travel, special events, equipment and all positions of training during the 2014 season.
As a student-athlete, Huskey was a four-year letterwinner at Texas Tech (2010-11) and Texas-San Antonio (2012-13). Huskey was utilized as a backup setter and defensive specialist during her two seasons with the Red Raiders. In her sophomore season at Tech, she appeared in 22 matches, making six starts. She totaled 126 digs in 2011, with 104 coming during Big 12 play. She also added 57 assists, tallying a season-high 23 against Grambling State.
With the Roadrunners, Huskey made an immediate impact upon her transfer, starting all 30 matches at setter as a junior. In 2013, she was named second-team All-Western Athletic Conference, also being voted team captain.
As a senior captain, Huskey helped UTSA to its first-ever Conference USA championships in the program's inaugural season in the league, claiming both the regular season and tournament titles to advance to the first round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
