Kimberly Lambert will begin her first season as an assistant coach with the University of Delaware volleyball program during the 2017 season.

Lambert recently completed her first season as director of operations at North Carolina State, after she served as an assistant coach with the Wolfpack the previous three years. NC State won 20 matches this past fall, posted a school-record 13 Atlantic Coast Conference victories, and notched the first top 10 win in program history with a victory at 10th-ranked Florida State.

As an assistant coach Lambert worked with the Wolfpack outside hitters and passers, while recruiting the West Coast. Under her tutelage, Dariyan Hopper finished the 2014 season ranked among the top 10 in the ACC in kills. Prior to joining NC State, Lambert spent the previous four seasons as the top assistant coach at Marshall.

Lambert served three seasons as the head coach at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi from 2006-08, where she was one of the youngest head coaches in Division I. She coached the 2006 Southland Conference Newcomer of the Year in Christie Feliz, who ended her career as the school’s leader in kills per set.

Prior to Corpus Christi, Lambert served as the top assistant at UTEP for two seasons, where she was the Miners’ recruiting coordinator, defensive coordinator and outside hitters coach.

In January 2005, she was chosen to lead the Sun Country Region Youth High Performance team under the United States Volleyball Association. As co-head coach, she participated in the High Performance Coaches Clinic at the United States Olympic Training Center.

Lambert served as head coach at Caldwell (Texas) High School in 2003, when she led the Lady Hornets to the 3A State semifinals. She was named the District 18-3A Coach of the Year and the Brazos Valley Area Coach of the Year.

Lambert spent the 2002 season as an assistant at Rice, helping lead the Owls to an 18-16 record. A native of Sugar Land, Texas, Lambert played collegiately at Texas A&M-Kingsville and earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology in 2001.

“I’m so thrilled to begin this next journey with Sara at the University of Delaware,” Lambert said. “I have known her for a very long time, and share many of the same philosophies. The buzz regarding the direction that Chrissi Rawak and her staff is taking the program is exciting, and I am thankful to be on board.”

“I have known Kimberly for a very long time and when I was hired at Delaware, she was the first person I reached out to,” said Delaware head coach Sara Matthews. “She is extremely trustworthy, talented, loyal, and has that charismatic personality that players and people are drawn to. Volleyball-wise, we share the same philosophies and training styles so it will be a great fit all the way around. I am so excited she and her husband JP will be joining our Blue Hen family.”
