Stevie Mussie joined the NC State volleyball staff as an assistant coach in February of 2010. A four-year letterwinner in college as an outside hitter, Mussie played volleyball for two years at Pacific before transferring to Washington.
Mussie returns to coaching after serving as an assistant at Colorado during the 2008 season. In 2009 she worked with Newport Beach, Calif., based Team Complete Athlete, a high-profile club volleyball organization with numerous active programs across nine states.
As a freshman at University of the Pacific in 2003, Mussie was named to the All-Big West Freshman Team after making 29 starts and averaging 2.46 kills and 2.49 digs per game. As a sophomore she recorded 14 double-doubles for the Tigers, racking up 23 double-digit kill performances and 17 double-figure dig efforts. She recorded 16 digs and 21 kills to lead Pacific against California in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Mussie transferred to the University of Washington in 2005, but was forced to sit out the season following knee surgery as the Huskies captured the NCAA Championship. As a junior the following year she was second on the roster in kills per game with 3.82, ranking 10th among all Pac-10 players. Mussie posted 14 double-doubles and 22 double-digit kill totals, and was named most outstanding player at the Seattle Regional in the NCAA Tournament. As a senior in 2007 she collected first-team All-Pac 10 honors and was named conference player of the week after hitting .343 with 17 kills and 18 digs in sweeps over Oregon and Oregon State. Her 1,117 attacks on the year stands as the 10th-best mark in school history, and she left the program ranked fifth all-time in both points per game (4.45) and kills per game (3.95).
A highly-recruited prospect out of Puyallup High, Mussie lettered in volleyball for three years and also competed for the track squad. Named the 2002 Gatorade Player of the Year in Washington, she earned first-team all league honors as a junior and senior and was a 2003 Fab 50 selection in Volleyball Magazine.
A 2008 graduate of the University of Washington with a bachelor of arts degree in sociology, Mussie resides in Raleigh.
