Brad Creamer Promoted To Volleyball Assistant Coach

OXFORD, Miss. † After assisting Ole Miss volleyball in a record-breaking season and its first NCAA Tournament berth in 11 years, Brad Creamer has been named an assistant coach, rounding out head coach Kayla Banwarth‘s staff.

“I’m so excited to have Brad remain on our staff as an assistant,” Banwarth said. “The contributions he made to our team in the fall were instrumental in our record-breaking season. He’s an outstanding up-and-coming coach, and I’m thrilled he’ll continue to be at Ole Miss.”

Creamer served as a volunteer assistant this past season before being promoted to assistant coach. He was part of the best turnaround in Division I Volleyball. Creamer helped Ole Miss improve from 1-19 in 2020-21 to 21-9 in 2021, a 65 percent increase in winning percentage. Further, of the teams who competed during the shortened 2020-21 season, Ole Miss is one of two Power Five teams and five programs nationally to see a 20-plus win improvement from the previous year. Under Creamer, the Rebels broke multiple program records, including total team blocks in a season (479), total team block assists (427) and team attacking percentage (.255).

Before he arrived in Oxford a year ago, Creamer wrapped up his playing career at George Mason University. Over the course of his five years with the Patriots, he garnered multiple accolades, including being tabbed as a 2021 AVCA All-American in his redshirt senior season, 2021 Off the Block National Player of the Month, 2021 Off the Block National Player of the Year Finalist and 2021 All-EIVA Second Team selection. Creamer also helped the Patriots tally a program-best record and longest winning streak, including multiple trips to the EIVA Tournament. Creamer concluded his career, leading the Patriots during the 2021 season with 54 total blocks while achieving a team-high season attacking efficiency of .488.

“I am excited to continue my career at Ole Miss, working with a team consisting of both great athletes as well as great people,” said Creamer. “The support of the Ole Miss community is electric, and I’m honored to be working with so many talented staff members under coach Banwarth’s leadership. I look forward to seeing everyone throughout our community in the stands on game day! Hotty Toddy!”

Fans can catch the Banwarth, Creamer and the Rebels in action four times this spring, beginning on March 19 when Ole Miss hosts Samford at 2 pm CT at the Gillom Center.
