April 19, 2006

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson volleyball head coach Jolene Jordan Hoover has announced the addition of Korrinn Krog to her staff. Krog (pronounced kr-OH-g) will replace Jodi Steffes, who is to be married over the summer, as an assistant coach and will begin her tenure in early May.

“I am truly excited to be a part of Clemson Athletics and the volleyball program,” Krog said. “The remarkable University and athletics staff made my decision to come to Clemson an easy one. I am really looking forward to working with Coach Hoover and competing in such a prestigious conference as the ACC.”

Krog brings over six years of coaching experience at various levels to the Tiger program. She spent the last two years as a volunteer assistant coach with the University of Kansas volleyball team, helping guide the Jayhawks to NCAA Tournament appearances both seasons and a 34-27 combined record.

“Korrinn’s experience will be an asset for our program,” Hoover said. “Korrinn volunteering for Kansas shows tremendous dedication and her willingness to have the opportunity to be a part of the program there, and that is impressive. She will compliment our staff well and I am very pleased that she is joining our program.”

Prior to Kansas, Krog was an assistant volleyball coach at Allen County Community College in Iola, KS. In her one year with the program, the Lady Red Devils reached the Final Four of the Region VI Tournament. Also in 2003, four student-athletes were named to the All-Conference team and two earned All-Region honors. Krog also served as Assistant Director of Student Activities while at Allen County.

Krog was a double major at Dakota State University in Madison, SD, earning degrees in Business Administration and Computer Information Systems in May of 2003. The Lake Benton, MN native also played two seasons of volleyball at Dakota State and was a DAC-10 Scholar Athlete before being sidelined with an injury. She was also a member of the Captain’s Council, a group of student-athletes used as liaisons between teams and athletic directors, and the Center of Excellence, a program for students who demonstrate superior academic performance and exhibit leadership potential.

While completing her undergraduate coursework, Krog was a student-assistant coach on the Trojan staff that took the squad to its first DAC-10 playoff appearance. Her primary responsibilities included player development and recruiting, as well as assisting with summer camps.

Krog is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Education at the University of Kansas and is scheduled to graduate this May.
