COACHING STAFF CALLIE PHILLIPS – HEAD COACH Phillips brings sixteen years of coaching experience to the Johnson & Wales volleyball program. She considers it an honor and a privilege to be the head coach at Johnson & Wales and works hard to maintain a program that reflects the school's values and makes its faculty, staff, and students proud. Coach Phillips played her high school ball at West Davidson High School in Lexington, NC where she earned three all-conference selections her sophomore, junior, and senior seasons and was named Conference Player of the Year in her final season. She was a part of three thrilling state playoff runs with the Green Dragons and helped establish a tradition of excellence in volleyball at West Davidson High School. Due to health concerns, her playing days were cut short after high school, but she continued to be active with various clubs and teams as she completed her college coursework.

Upon graduation from Appalachian State University in 2000, Coach Phillips returned to her alma mater high school as a varsity assistant. The next year, she continued as a varsity assistant and took over the junior varsity team, leading it to conference championships in 2001 and 2002 and a 20-win season in 2002. In 2003, she moved on to Jay M. Robinson High School in Concord, NC where the school was in its third season. As head coach, she worked to establish a competitive program there from 2003-2008 that was highlighted by a 2005 team that won the conference regular season and tournament titles. This team also claimed the district title and finished as the regional runner-up. Coach Phillips compiled a record of 88-44 while at Jay M. Robinson and was awarded the Conference Coach of the Year award in 2005. Several of her players continued their athletic careers in college. The JWU program has made leaps and bounds throughout Coach Phillips's tenure. After finishing 3-23 in its first season, the team increased its win total to win nine matches in 2011. 2012 marked the program's first winning season at 17-10, and the team also qualified for the USCAA National Championships and finished the year with a record of 18-14. 2013 was a breakout season for the Wildcats, who posted wins against some tough teams in the region and registered the athletic department's first 20-win season. These efforts earned the Wildcats another USCAA tournament bid, and the team finished the year with a record of 24-13. The team continues to be a fierce competitor in the region and the USCAA, and the Wildcats seek to return to the national championships again this season. Coach Phillips believes in hard work, determination, intelligence on the court, and teamwork. Her team supports these values as they strive to make a difference in the classroom, on campus, and in the community. She completed her high school teaching career as a special education lead teacher for Cabarrus County Schools before joining JWU in a full-time capacity in July 2014. She is a North Carolina native and lives in Kannapolis, NC.

MARQUISHA CLAYBURN — ASSISTANT COACH Clayburn is entering her fifth season as an assistant coach for the Wildcats. She comes to JWU from Johnson C. Smith University, where she served as Head Coach for four years. In 2001, Clayburn graduated from Johnson C. Smith where she played basketball and volleyball. She started as an outside hitter and middle blocker for four years and holds school records in blocks, kills, and service aces. During her time at Johnson C. Smith, Clayburn was named All-CIAA three times. Clayburn brings valuable years of volleyball experience as a coach and player. Her positive attitude, along with her motivating spirit, will help the team. She believes in determination, hard work, and teamwork in addition to school and community involvement. Clayburn's chief responsibilities are working with the team's offensive and coordinating its training programs. She is also involved in player development and oversees the team's career committees. Clayburn currently resides in Charlotte, NC with her family.
