The nine Big 12 volleyball coaches in the Big 12 have come together to sponsor the 2020 AVCA Diversity award.
All nine of the Big 12 coaches tweeted a statement on Thursday, "The volleyball coaches of the Big 12 are proud to sponsor an AVCA Diversity Awards winner this year. The $1,000 donation provided opportunities for up-and-coming minority members of our coaching community to attend the AVCA Convention. We challenge volleyball coaches around the country to do the same."
Iowa State head coach Christy Johnson-Lynch, was one of the coaches to tweet this statement.
