UNCW Names Hampton Head Volleyball Coach

WILMINGTON, N.C. – Director of Athletics Jimmy Bass has announced the appointment of Dottie Hampton as the 12th head volleyball coach in UNCW history.

"I'm thankful to Director of Athletics Jimmy Bass and Senior Associate AD Tiffany Tucker for giving me this opportunity to join the Seahawk family," said Hampton, who comes to the program following two seasons at Coastal Carolina. "I'm humbled and excited to lead the UNCW volleyball team as we continue to build a winning tradition."

UNCW will be Hampton's third head coaching position following tenures at Niagara (2012) and South Carolina (2017-interim). She has served as an assistant coach on the staff at Coastal Carolina the last two seasons and replaces Amy Bambenek, who resigned her post in late January.

"We're very excited about Dottie becoming a Seahawk," said Bass. "She brings an impressive volleyball pedigree to our program. She is very familiar with the Colonial Athletic Association and Seahawk volleyball, so it will be a seamless transition. Our student-athletes and staff will enjoy working with Dottie as the program continues to grow and prosper."

Hampton helped the Chanticleers compile a 24-6 record overall and 13-3 mark in the competitive Sun Belt Conference. The Chants finished first in the Eastern Division and came up just short to Texas State in the finals of the SBC Tournament.

Coastal's Anett Nemeth collected Honorable Mention honors by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) – a first by a Coastal player. Anett was also an All-Region selection and a First-Team All-SBC pick by the coaches. In addition, CCU's Brigitta Petrenko was a First-Team All-SBC selection as a freshman as well as the league's Freshman of the Year.

Prior to joining the Coastal Carolina program, Hampton served as an assistant at South Carolina from 2014-17, finishing the 2017 season as interim head coach. In Hampton's four seasons in Columbia, the Gamecocks racked up 60 wins.

Hampton was previously the head coach at Niagara, piloting the Purple Eagles to a 15-14 record overall and 12-6 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in 2012.

Hampton served as an assistant coach at five schools. She served on the staffs at Indiana (2005-06), former CAA rival George Mason (2007-10), Pittsburgh (2011) and Butler (2013). In 2009, she helped George Mason post a 23-9 record, capture the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament championship secure and NCAA berth.

Hampton is a 1998 graduate of Purdue-Fort Wayne, where she was a three-time All-Great Lakes Valley Conference and two-time All-Region volleyball honoree. Hampton was an AVCA All-America selection as a senior.

Following her collegiate career, Hampton played four seasons professionally in Europe.

Good luck to her!

Interesting she was at Niagara for 1 year as head and then left to go be an assistant coach somewhere else.
