Kelly Cobb tabbed to restart CCCB women's volleyball

Moberly, Mo.

Kelly Cobb has been named as the next head women's volleyball coach at Central Christian College of the Bible, Director of Athletics Kori Zarzutzki announced on Wednesday.

CCCB will be relaunching its women's volleyball program after an eight-year break from the sport, preparing for competition during the 2024 season.

"We are stoked to have Kelly lead our volleyball program," Zarzutzki said. "She has contagious energy, deep love for the game, and is a great fit for CCCB!"

Cobb comes to Central Christian after two seasons as the assistant volleyball coach at Hallsville High School in Hallsville, Mo. A native of Hallsville, Cobb started her volleyball playing career as the Indians' setter from 2011-14. She currently ranks fourth in career assists for the program. 

Cobb went on to attend Drury University in Springfield, where she was an undergraduate assistant for the volleyball program under Coach Jenifer Bahner-Hill from 2014-16. 

Cobb graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from William Woods University in Fulton, in 2017 and currently works at Veterans United Home Loans in Columbia.

Kelly's parents both attended CCCB, while her father, Russ, graduated in 1988 and later served as the head men's basketball coach from 1991-97.

“I’m super excited to get this program rolling again," Cobb said. "My mom and dad met here back in the 80s, where my mom played on the volleyball team. My dad played basketball and ended up coming back to coach here.

"I have a lot of different family members who have gone to school at Central, and there’s a rich history here for me! I’m looking forward to giving more girls an opportunity to play at the next level.”
