Matt Buttermore, who led the Hastings Broncos to an NAIA national championship, has been named the next head volleyball coach at Omaha, the Mavericks announced Monday.
Buttermore replaces Rose Shires, who retired after 29 seasons at the school.
"I would like to thank Trev Alberts and UNO for this opportunity," Buttermore said in a statement. "I was impressed by the growth of Omaha's campus, the resources available to our student-athletes and the leadership team's vision for continuing to grow Maverick athletics.
"I'm excited to get in the gym and work with our current team, as well as connecting with the Omaha volleyball community."
Buttermore, a Lincoln native, found great success at Hastings. He led the Broncos to five NAIA Tournament appearances, and they won a national championship in 2016. He also led the Broncos to three Great Plains Athletic Conference regular-season championships and two GPAC Tournament titles.
"It was not an easy decision to leave Hastings and I will miss it dearly, but I would like to thank them and the community for the support they provided our program and our family over the last seven years," Buttermore said.
