She started at Stanford with Don Shaw
and was instrumental in developing the program into a national power. Corlett, inducted into the Southern California Indoor Volleyball Hall of Fame last spring, took over as interim coach for the 2000 season when Shaw took a leave of absence. John Dunning's
first piece of business when hired to take over in 2001 was to make Corlett his top assistant. Current coach Kevin Hambly
said retaining Corlett was a no-brainer. Corlett became one of the most familiar names in volleyball at every level, from the club level to the national team. She served as an assistant coach with the U.S. National Team during multiple World University Games and was on the sideline for the 2003 Pan American Games. She also held positions in management with USA Volleyball, including business manager for the U.S. Women's National Team in the 1980s and the head of delegation for the U.S. Junior National Team from 2007-13. Prior to Stanford, Corlett served as an assistant at San Jose State (1987-88) and spent five years assisting at UCLA (1982-86) under legendary coach Andy Banachowski, for whom she played. Corlett played three varsity sports and was named the All-University Athlete of the Year in 1979. She's been a national badminton champion and won the Broderick Award in that sport. She was a three-time All-American in volleyball and played on the Bruins' national champion women's basketball team. Her number, 44, has been retired and she was inducted into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame in 1999. Two years earlier she was named one of the 'Best 25 Players' in program history.
