Charita Stubbs, a UA alum and former assistant volleyball coach, will be returning to head coach Dave Rubio’s coaching staff. 

Stubbs will be an assistant coach again, while Melissa Walker — a former full-time assistant — will now be a volunteer coach. 

Stubbs served as an assistant and associate head coach with the Wildcats for nine seasons before she was hired as  head coach at NC State in 2006. She ran the Wolfpack's program  for four seasons.

As a player at the UA, Stubbs —  formerly Charita Johnson — was the first player in Arizona history to record 300 kills, 300 digs and 100 blocks in one seasons, and she helped the Wildcats reach back-to-back Sweet 16s in the 1993 and 1994 NCAA Tournaments.
