The University of Nebraska volleyball program officially began with its first game,
and first win, against Concordia College, Seward, Nebraska, on September 20, 1975.
Since 1975, there have been three head coaches, the first being Pat Sullivan. She
was followed by Terry Pettit, who coached the team from 1977 to 1999. Coach John
Cook took over the volleyball program in 2000.
Over the years the volleyball program has been a member of two athletic conferences:
the Big Eight Conference and the Big Twelve Conference. Nebraska dominated the Big
Eight Conference starting with the 1976 season and ending with the 1995 season
before they joined the Big 12 Conference in 1996. The Huskers won NCAA National
titles in 1995, 2000, and 2006. The home venue for the Nebraska volleyball program
is the Nebraska Collesium.
