Farmer Cats’ assistant Braden earns UK job

By Jay 6. Tate
Sp mtr Editor

You can always go home again.

One month after former UK
head volleyball coach Fran Flory
returned to LSU —— the school
which provided Flory her first
chance at the Southeastern Con-
ference, Jona Braden returned to
the school which provided Braden
her first chance at the SEC.

Braden is back at UK.

“Kentucky has always been a
very special place to me,” Braden
said Friday, soon after formally
accepting UK's vacant coaching
position. “I learned a lot here and
I‘m excited to be back."

Braden returns to the school for
which she coached her last volley—
ball match — a 3—0 loss to Florida
in 1992’s NCAA Tournament.
The former volleyball standout at
Ball State was an associate coach
under Kathy DeBoer for both the
I99] and 1992 seasons. During her
time in Lexington, the Cats went
49—22, won the NIT championship
in 1991 and advanced to the
NCAA Sweet 16 in her final UK

“I did not expect my time at
Kt ntucky to be that short,“ Braden
sa‘d. “Moving into administration
w; s a tough decision. I thought the
Butler (University) administrative
role was a great opportunity."

“The first time I hired her, it,

w: s kind of a long shot," said
DeBoer, now an associate director
within UK’s Athletics Administra—
tirn. “She was a successful head
coach and I was lucky to find
sorneone like that to come in. Peo-
ple like (Braden) are very valuable.
Butler knew that and they offered
her a great opportunity."

Though Braden’s role as But-
ler’s senior associate athletics
director moved her away from the
day-to-day life of a full-time vol-
leyball coach, many close to her,
including UK assistant Ainsley
Grimes, knew there might come a

time when sideline withdrawal
would move Braden back into

“She always told me since she
left here that she missed Kentucky
and that it was always somewhere
she considered ome,” said
Grimes, who also played at UK
and was recruited by Braden. “This
was something I think she always

Sotne were surprised when UK
elected to hire a candidate who had
been out of coaching for six years.
But Braden, who spent eight sea—
sons as Butler’s head coach prior to
her time in Lexington, doesn't
view the decision as irregular at all.

“I don’t think there's going to
be a problem —— it’s just a matter of
boning up on what it is that I need
to learn," she said. “I“.ach person
I’ve talked to about it says it’s just
like a bike —— you just jump right

“I look at it like a sabbatical,”
Braden added. “I was away from
coaching, but I was intricately
involved with (Butler's) coaches
and their development. I was able
to provide them with that wisdom
and support that comes from being
in the coaching ranks. Ifanything,
(being away) kept me fresh in my

Assistant Athletics Director for
Non-Revenue Sports john Cropp,
who along with DeBoer and Ath-
letics Director CM. Newton led
the search committee, believes
having a background in both
coaching and administration is a
valuable blend ofexperience.

“When you have the opportuni—
ty to know that person and what
their style was it makes it very
easy,” Cropp said.

He noted that moves from
coaching to administration back to
coaching are not rare. Cropp
pointed to Newton’s moves from
Alabama to an administrative job
with the SEC back to a coaching
job at Vanderbilt as evidence that
this type of career movement can

lead to success.

“Those of us who have been in
this industry for a lon time have
seen it work very wefi and hove
done it ourselves,” Cropp said.
“That’s a factor that I think is a
strength in this candidacy.
(Braden) has grown considerably
by being in a role other than a

Braden’s most important role
now will be as an architect -— to
merge her vision of UK and the
existing situation. Last season, the
Cats went 14—17 and have man—
aged only one SEC tournament
win since 1994. Though UK
returns All—SEC talent in outside
hitter LaTanya Webb and middle
blocker jenny Muzzey, Braden
shies from making boisterous
claims of future greatness.

“I want to push it to the Nth
degree that we want to be success—
ful," she said.

“The oal would be to do the
fastest of ense possible to keep the
defense reeling. But first and fore-
most, we’re going to grow this
program from where it is right

And where it is right now is a
place where quality setting comes
around rarely. Last season’s start-
ing setter, Kristy Burns, trans—
ferred to Indiana University—Pun
due University Indianapolis.
Sophomore Terri Crabb, who
eventually lost the job to Burns, is
UK’s only returning setter.

But help may be on the way.

Braden was a setter in college.
And DeBoer thinks Braden can
make something happen right

“I‘ve seen plenty of college
coaches take someone who wasn't
the world’s greatest setter and
make them very effective," DeBoer
said. “That’s the piece in the puz—
zle right now that‘s doesn’t have an
answer. Yeah, it’s a pretty big
piece. I think that’s where you’re
going to see jona’s impact more
than anywhere else.”

Dingman wasfirst choice

By Jay G. Tate
Sports Editor

Though former Butler Univer-

sity administrator jona Braden
became UK’s sixth head volleyball
co ich Friday, current But-
ler head coach Sharon
Dingman was the Cats'
first choice.
Din man said she was
offerecF the UK job two
weeks ago, but declined
the offer.

“All the reasons I decid—
ed to stay dealt with But-
ler," Dingman said.
“'I here was nothing at UK that
wasn’t very good or very appeal-

Some close to the UK program
believed Dingman would eventu—
ally become the new coach after
former head coach Fran Flory left
for Louisiana State last month.

Those ideas were born from
several strong ties Dingman has
to Big Blue.



She worked at UK as an assis-
tant coach in 1988 under then
head coach Kathy DeBoer. Ding—
man maintained a relationship
with DeBoer and coached sum-
mer camps at UK after her career
moved her away from Lex-

But in the end, Ding-
man said she was unwilling
to change programs.

“People don’t realize
how good ofa job I have at
Butler,” Dingman said.

“I have nothing but
good things to say about
UK, but now’s a good time
to be at Butler."

Dingman also said it was tou h
to decline an offer made to her By
DeBoer — someone Dingman
considers a good friend.

“That was certainly the hardest
part," Dingman said. “Kathy is
really a mentor to me and I have a
lot of respect for her.

“But I just think I need to stay
where I am right now."

UK Assistant Athletics Direc-
tor for Non-Revenue Sportsjohn
Cropp refused to view Braden’s
hire as a second—best situation.

“I wouldn't say we tended to
focus on Sharon first as much as
Sharon was the obvious candidate
because she’s actively coaching
volleyball," he said.

DeBoer view the situation sim-

“I didn’t really rank them in
terms of first or second,” DeBoer
said of the Dingman—Braden deci—

“Once Sharon declined, I was
like ‘Where do we want to 0?”
Our people had been tal 'ng
about (Braden) from the begin—
ning. I thought it might be diffi-
cult to lure her out of administra-
tion. But it was something I felt
like I owed to our players and all
the people — C.M. (Newton) and
everybody — who kept saying,
‘What aboutJona?’

“I thought we should at least
make a run at her.”
