Former Ohio women’s volleyball head coach Ryan Theis will take a piece of Ohio University with him to Marquette.

Theis named Meghan Keck as an assistant coach for the Marquette University women’s volleyball program on Tuesday.  

Keck, who coached with Theis for his entire six-year tenure at Ohio, served as assistant from 2008-2011 and associated head coach during the 2012-13 season. She also acted as the Bobcats offensive coordinator and led the team’s recruiting efforts. Keck helped Ohio sign five top-100 nationally ranked recruits.

She helped lead the ‘Cats to an overall record of 144-54 and four trips to the NCAA Championship, including a pair of second round appearances.  

Keck, a former setter at Auburn and the University of Illinois-Chicago, assisted Abby Gilleland to 2013 AVCA All-American honors as well as the Mid-American Conference Player of the Year and setter of the year.

The Bobcats led the MAC in hitting percentage during three years of Keck’s tenure.

The Chicago native also aided setter Michelle Jantsch in becoming a three-time all-conference player who ended her career at Ohio in second place on its career assistant list.

Keck was named a recipient of the American Volleyball Coaches Association 30 Under 30 Award in 2012, an award honoring thirty rising volleyball coaches under 30 years old in the sport at all levels of the game.
