CVB: USD Names Williamson Head Coach

VERMILLION, S.D. – South Dakota named Leanne Williamson the head coach for the Coyote volleyball program on Wednesday, removing the interim tag from the interim head coach title she has held since March 13.

“I am extremely excited for the opportunity to continue to work with Coyote volleyball and I want to thank (Athletic Director) David Herbster and (Senior Woman Administrator) Jamie Oyen for having the confidence in me to continue the Coyote volleyball tradition,” said Williamson. “We’ve had a lot of success over the last couple of years and I look forward to continue and build upon that success.”

Williamson takes over for Matt Houk, who left South Dakota last month after a six-year stint as USD’s head volleyball coach.

Williamson was an assistant coach under Houk for five seasons after playing at the Division I level for UW-Milwaukee.
“We could not be more excited to have Leanne Williamson as the next head coach of USD volleyball,” said Oyen, who led the search for the position. “Her experience as a Division I player and her current coaching experience at USD made her a great candidate for this position and throughout this process, Leanne continued to rise to the top.”

A native of Hartland, Wis., Williamson graduated from UW-Milwaukee and played for the Panthers from 2004-2007. During her senior season, she led the nation in triple-doubles, was the Horizon League Player of the Year and earned AVCA All-Region and honorable mention All-America honors.

Williamson joined the Coyote coaching staff in 2009 and helped the Coyotes reach the Great West Conference Tournament championship game in 2010 and the Summit League Tournament this past season.

Over the past six seasons, South Dakota has had an overall record of 97-85, including a 19-13 record this past fall and a 37-18 record at home.

South Dakota volleyball is in the middle of its spring season. The Coyotes will play Northern Iowa, Minnesota, Omaha, North Dakota State and the Iowa Ice at the UNI Spring Volleyball Tournament in Cedar Falls, Iowa, on Saturday.
