Kim Davis
Assistant Coach

Former Panther standout Kim Davis is in her 12th year on head coach Bobbi Petersen's coaching staff.

A native of Carroll, Iowa, the former Kim McCaffrey was one of the best players in UNI history, having been named to the Missouri Valley Conference All-Centennial Volleyball Team in 2006.  She helped lead UNI to its second NCAA Sweet 16 appearance as a senior in 2001, earning first team all-conference honors for the third time and being selected to the All-Central Region squad.

A team captain, Davis was one of three Panthers to collect 400 kills in 2001 with 410.  She also led the team in digs with 379.  Davis ranked in the top 10 in the Missouri Valley Conference in kill average (3.50), dig average (3.24) and service ace average (0.39).

She finished her career with 1,272 kills, at that time good for fifth on UNI's career chart, and 1,015 digs, placing her sixth.  She also was only the fourth person in school history to go over the 1,000 mark in both career categories.

In the classroom, Davis was a two-time first team MVC scholar-athlete selection.  She and her husband, Shane, have a son, Camden (6) and two daughters, Taylor (4) and Paige (2).
