Kaki Morehead
EOU Head Volleyball Coach

Outside of work, my passion extends to a second full-time job involving cows and horses. I find joy in riding horses and immersing myself in the great outdoors.

EOU has been my professional home for 17 years, during which I served as the head coach for a significant portion of my tenure. Additionally, I contributed as an assistant coach for one year and spent three years as a student athlete.

My journey to EOU was initially tied to my passion for both volleyball and rodeo. Although my plan was to relocate to Idaho with my husband, unforeseen circumstances led me to step in as the interim coach due to the unexpected passing of the previous coach. This experience drew me back to volleyball, and over time, my husband and I realized that EOU was the ideal place for us to build our family.

What I cherish most about working at EOU is the family atmosphere fostered by Anji within the athletic community. It’s a unique environment where everyone genuinely desires success for each other, a sentiment not always prevalent in athletic departments. I am proud to be part of the Mountie Family.

In terms of making a positive impact on the EOU community, our volleyball program has played a role in bringing the community together at Quinn Coliseum. While basketball and football traditionally draw crowds, our girls have gradually garnered support through the years. The community has embraced the uniqueness of our team, fostering a connection that extends beyond the volleyball court.

Outside of work, my passion extends to a second full-time job involving cows and horses. I find joy in riding horses and immersing myself in the great outdoors.
