    A former national champion and four-year starter at the University of Nebraska, Angie Oxley Behrens returns for her 11th season as an assistant coach at Creighton. An original member of Kirsten Bernthal Booth’s staff, she is the longest-tenured assistant coach in program history.

    Behrens works closely with Creighton’s outside hitters while also assisting with scouting and recruiting.

    Last season Creighton won MVC regular-season and tournament titles while landing in the top 25 for the first time, continuing an upward trend. The last 10 years have seen the Creighton team record its top seven single-season kill totals all-time, as well as the top five individual single-season marks that were set by Leah Ratzlaff, Alicia Runge and Kelly Goc.

    Behrens has trained four outside hitters to a spot on the MVC’s All-Freshman Team; Carolyn Decker (2004), Allie Oelke (2007), Leah McNary (2011) and Melanie Jereb (2012). Oelke became the program’s first player named Valley Freshman of the Year, as well, while Jereb became CU’s first freshman ever named First Team All-MVC.

    Behrens has seen Creighton go 187-119 in her 10 completed seasons on the bench, including NCAA Tournament wins in 2010 and 2012.

    While at NU, Behrens won three Big 12 titles, was named 1997 Big 12 Freshman of the Year and was chosen as the University’s female student-athlete of the year in 2001 after leading the Cornhuskers to a 34-0 mark and national title in the fall of 2000 as a senior.

    She closed her career as the NU’s all-time digs leader with 1,086.

    In the classroom, Behrens was a Chancellor’s Scholar and four-time Highest Honors Distinction Medal honoree. She also was a four-year academic All-Big 12 selection, a recipient of an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and one of 10 finalists for the 2001 NCAA Woman of the Year. She was also a member of the Mortar Board Honor Society, Pi Lambda Theta Honor Society, Golden Key, 2000 Homecoming Royalty Court and the Dean’s List.

    Along with her coaching duties, Behrens helps organize Creighton’s volleyball camps in addition to her role in the Bluejay compliance office.

     Behrens and her husband, Matt, were married in 2006. The couple resides in Lincoln with their two kids, Logan (3) and Hattie (born in February).
