Former New Mexico Standout Joins Volleyball Staff
Taylor Hadfield joined the Rice staff for one season (2012) as a volunteer assistant coach. She came to Rice from the University of New Mexico, where she played and coached the previous five seasons.
Hadfield served as a student assistant coach for New Mexico in 2011, helping three Lobos earn All-Mountain West honors. She also coached club for New Mexico Juniors, which saw numerous players earn Division I scholarships.
Hadfield was an All-American outside hitter at New Mexico from 2007-10, who helped lead the Lobos to two NCAA Tournament appearances, snapping a postseason drought that dated back to 1994. She finished her career with 835 kills and ranks 10th all-time on both the Lobos' career (.267) and season (.317, 2008) hitting efficiency list. Hadfield was a two-time All-Mountain West selection, earning the honor in 2009 and 2010, along with AVCA Honorable Mention All-America honors in 2009. A three-year starter, UNM won 20 or more games in all three seasons she started.
Hadfield graduated from New Mexico in 2011 with a major in sociology.
