Jenny Andrew Promoted to Associate Head Coach
Feb. 28, 2014
"It is an honor to promote Jenny Andrew to associate head coach. Jenny is one of the best young coaches in our sport. She loves Houston and we are glad to have her here at University of Houston."
Andrew will continue to assist Platt in all aspects of the program, most specifically the development of the offense and setters.
Andrew joined the program in 2012 as assistant coach when Platt was named head coach. She came to Houston after a year at Houston Baptist, her first season under Coach Platt. The two led the Huskies to a 22-9 season. Before HBU, Andrew was an assistant coach at the University of Virginia in 2010 under Lee Maes, current assistant coach at Louisville.
"Jenny is extremely loyal person. She is a great role model for our student-athletes; she cares about their growth as young women both on and off the court," Platt said. "Jenny is a passionate and knowledgeable coach who is an excellent trainer. She has been essential to our current success and has a compelling desire to build Houston Volleyball into a national competitive program."
Andrew was a four-year letter winner at the University of Texas and was instrumental in the team's success as a 6-foot-2 setter. She helped her team to three NCAA Tournament appearances, including the Sweet 16 in 2004 and Elite Eight in 2006. She was named Most Valuable Player in 2006, was a Big 12 Academic All-Conference and Commissioner's Honor Roll selection. Andrew was invited to try out for the United States National Team prior to her senior season and made the USA Volleyball A2 Team.
Andrew graduated from Texas in 2007 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in sport management. She is a Houston-area native, and was a standout on the court at Kingwood High School.
"I would like to thank Kaddie for this amazing opportunity. We have something absolutely special going on here at Houston. From the administration, Kaddie and Travis, support staff and the greatest group of hard working girls that you can ask for - it's special. We are building a culture and a program and I am so blessed to be a part of it. The future is bright."
