Director Kristen Wright
Kristen Wright was named the head volleyball coach for the UNF Indoor and Beach Volleyball programs in December of 2017.
Wright came to the Ospreys following a four-year stint (2014-17) leading the indoor and beach volleyball programs at MiraCosta College in Oceanside, Calif. She started both programs and led the Spartans to five conference championships and a state title in beach volleyball.
Joining MiraCosta in January of 2014, Wright quickly built a strong program with the indoor squad posting an 80-28 (74.1 win percentage) record. Under her tutelage, the Spartans produced one All-American, two All-State, three All-Region, two conference Players of the Year and a Beach Duo of the Year award winners. She also collected a pair of Conference Coach of the Year awards. Wright was named an AVCA Top 30 Coaches under Thirty Award winner in 2012.
Owning over a decade of head coaching experience, Wright was a championship winning coach in the high school ranks before going to MiraCosta. She led Tri-City Christian to eight consecutive CIF San Diego Section Championships, five So-Cal Regional Championships and a State Championship runner-up finish. At Santa Fe Christian, she guided the team to a California State Championship, SoCal Regional Championship and league championship.
In 13 years as a head coach, Wright’s teams have won a championship in 12, earning multiple titles in several seasons. Her prep pupils collected two All-American and seven Player of the Year accolades. Additionally, she was inducted into the San Diego Breitbard Coaching Hall of Fame in 2016.
Along with a successful coaching career, Wright was a four-year starter at the University of San Diego. She earned AVCA All-American and All-Region honors while also garnering three WCC All-Conference accolades during her career with the Toreros.
Wright earned her bachelor's degree in history from San Diego in 2006, while also completing her master's degree from Azusa Pacifiic in June of 2018.
