Susan Huffman

Susan is a native of Houston, Texas, where she was a standout high school athlete receiving All-State honors in both volleyball and basketball. 

After high school, Susan continued playing volleyball as an outside hitter and a middle blocker at Division I Baylor University for her first two collegiate seasons and then at NCAA Division I University of Oklahoma for her final two seasons.  At the University of Oklahoma, she earned All-Big 8 Conference honors and was named the Sooner’s Most Valuable Player in 1991.    

Following college, Susan was the assistant coach at NCAA Division I University of Nevada in Reno.  She accepted the head coaching position at Dominican University in San Rafael in 1995.  While at Dominican University, Susan led the Dominican team to two California Pacific Conference titles and was twice named California Pacific Conference’s Coach of the Year.  Additionally, three of Susan’s players at Dominican were awarded All-American honors and many more were named to the All-Conference teams.   Fun fact: Camp Director, Amanda Estes, played for Susan at Dominican!

Susan has spent almost 20 years coaching youth at all levels in college, club, high school, camps and CYO.  She enjoys watching athletes progress in their development and sharing her love for the game.

Susan earned her B.S. in Marketing from the University of Oklahoma and her California teaching credential from Dominican University.  When not coaching volleyball, she teaches in the San Rafael City School District.

Volleyball is a family affair for the Huffmans.  Her daughter will be playing NCAA Division I volleyball next fall and her husband is a 3-time NCAA Division I All-American and a former member of the USA Men’s Volleyball Team.  She also has a son who enjoys cheering on his big sister.
