GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – First-year Green Bay volleyball head coach Michaela Franklin announced on Tuesday the hiring of Kalin Zimmerman as an assistant coach on her 2013 staff. Zimmerman is a Green Bay native and a recent graduate of Northern Michigan University where she starred at libero for the Wildcats from 2011-12.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Kalin to our staff,” said Franklin, who was hired in January. “She helped us with camp this summer and her excitement, passion and eagerness to learn are the reasons why she is going to have a positive impact on the Green Bay volleyball program. Kalin is originally from Green Bay, which will help in recruiting, and the fact that she played libero collegiately shows that she has a good knowledge of the game which will help her with the transition from player to coach.”

Zimmerman played in 31 of a possible 32 matches as a senior for NMU in 2012, posting a team-high 374 digs while accumulating 54 assists and 24 service aces. She received the team’s Top Newcomer Award as a junior in 2011 after appearing in all 29 matches, leading the team with 390 digs and collecting 60 assists and 23 aces.

Prior to attending NMU Zimmerman played two seasons at Kishwaukee College in Illinois where she was named to the region’s all-tournament team as a freshman and was selected as team captain as a sophomore. She played prep volleyball at N.E.W. Lutheran High School in Green Bay where she was a three-time all-conference pick, named conference player of the year, tabbed honorable mention all-state two times and was selected as the Press-Gazette’s All-Area Player of the Year.

Most recently Zimmermann was a defensive specialist for the Badger Blizzards – a professional women’s volleyball team in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) – helping the squad to an Adult USA Volleyball Nationals appearance in May.

Zimmerman joins fellow first-year assistant Patrick Bowlin on the three-member Green Bay coaching staff. The Phoenix is set to begin practice for the 2013 campaign in early August before opening competition at the Northern Illinois Invitational at the end of the month. The complete schedule will be posted soon on GreenBayPhoenix.com.
