Brianne Smith joins USF's staff as the Director of Operations as a familiar face to head coach Courtney Draper and her staff. Smith spent four years playing under Draper as a setter at Eckerd College, ranking third in all-time assists at the school with 2,357 and helping to lead the Tritons to an NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in 2011 before graduating in 2012.
Smith assisted at Eckerd for one season after graduation, and was also involved with the event management staff. Her duties with USF will include the organization of team camps, community outreach projects and day-to-day operations of the volleyball office, under Draper and her staff.
“I’m extremely pleased to add Bri Smith to our staff,” Draper said. “Bri was an exceptional leader at Eckerd, and was very involved in the community, and I think she will help us become even more efficient in our office. I’m excited to work with her on a daily basis.”
