Tyler Junior College Press Release

After spending the past two years as the Assistant Coach at TJC, Brandi Hood becomes the third volleyball coach in TJC history, succeeding Coach Ronda Shirley.

“I am thrilled that Brandi Hood will become our next volleyball coach,” said Athletic Director Dr. Tim Drain. “I was very impressed with her as an assistant coach under Ronda Shirley, and have been thrilled with our volleyball team's success on and off the court the past few years. I thank the committee for their time in the selection process, and look forward to many more successful years in Apache volleyball under Coach Hood.”

Brandi began her collegiate volleyball career playing for Coach Shirley at Hutchinson Community College (KS) in 2005-2006 and was named a First-Team NJCAA All-American her sophomore year. She graduated with her Associates of Arts degree and then advanced to play at Texas Tech University where she earned her bachelor's degree in 2008.

After graduation, Brandi went back to Hutchinson Community College as an Assistant Coach from 2009 to 2013. During her tenure there, she helped coach the team to a 9th place (2009) and 11th place (2012) finish at the NJCAA National Tournament.

In 2013, Brandi came to Tyler as the Assistant Coach and has helped Tyler to a 2nd place (2013) and 8th place (2014) finish at the NJCAA National Tournament.

“If this doesn't go to show what hard work and putting in your time truly means, I don't know what does. I've worked my whole life for this moment right here,” said Coach Hood. “To be starting my head coaching career at Tyler Junior College, I am truly grateful. An opportunity like this doesn't come around every day. I am excited to get the 2015-2016 team together and am looking forward see all the things that they are going to accomplish.”

Brandi is a native of Hutchinson, Kansas and has one daughter, Tynlee.
