Aug. 18, 2014
RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State head volleyball coach Bryan Bunn announced on Monday the addition of Charlotte Harris to the staff as the Wolfpack’s director of operations. Harris joins the program after spending the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach at Goucher College.
“We’re excited to add Charlotte to our staff,” said Bunn. “It’s always nice to have a director of ops. She’ll handle most of the administrative duties, like planning travel and coordinating practices, so that our coaches can focus on recruiting and coaching.”
While in Baltimore, Md., at Goucher, Harris was responsible for several aspects of the program, including scheduling and planning practices, coaching during games and also recruiting student-athletes. Under her guidance, Megan Chalk earned all-conference recognition.
“I’m really excited to be a part of the Wolfpack and join the coaching staff here at NC State,” Harris said. “I’ve worked camps with the coaches in the past and I loved working with the staff and being a part of the university, so I look forward to my role as director of operations.”
Harris was a standout libero and defensive specialist at Mercer University in Georgia, earning Atlantic Sun Libero of the Year and first team all-conference honors in 2010 after a stellar junior season. During that year, she set the school record for digs in a single season with 638 and digs per set (5.45), which ranked 16th nationally.
The Chapel Hill, N.C. native also owns the career record for digs per set (4.70) and tallied the fifth-most digs in Bears history with 1381. Harris led the team in digs three of her four years, spanning from her sophomore to senior seasons.
She also has experience coaching at the club level, as Harris served as the head coach for Columbia Volleyball Club in Maryland and will be working with Triangle Volleyball Club this year - one of the premier clubs in the nation.
Harris attended East Chapel Hill High School before earning an athletic scholarship to Mercer. There she graduated with a degree in psychology and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Athletic Leadership and Administration from Goucher College.
