Morgan Salow was named an assistant coach for the UNCG volleyball program in April of 2014.
Working with the Spartan middle hitters, her guidance paid immediate dividends as seniors Vicky Harley and Kelsey Sidney garnered first and second team All-Southern Conference accolades. Salow was also charged with running the UNCG in-match blocking and defensive schemes and helped lead the Spartans to the top of the SoCon in digs per set.
With Salow in the fold, UNCG captured its first 20 win season since 2010 as well as an appearance in the Southern Conference tournament semifinals. The Blue and Gold finished in a tie for second place in the league standings – the team’s highest non-divisional standing since joining the SoCon. UNCG won 11 conference matches during the campaign marking the most victories in a 16-match Southern Conference format. Additionally, the Spartans were 6-2 in league road matches while completing series sweeps of four SoCon opponents in Chattanooga, Wofford, Mercer and The Citadel.
Salow, a standout player at Wisconsin from 2005-08, arrived in Greensboro after serving as an assistant coach at Jacksonville State for last three seasons.
Before her time at Jacksonville State, Salow put in a three-year stint with the Capital Volleyball Academy as head coach of the Capital 15 Navy club. She guided the team to a top-five finish in the AAU National Championships and a first-place finish in the Badger Region. Salow also spent one season as the head coach of the Capital 17 Elite squad and under her guidance, the 17 Elite squad landed a top-15 finish at the AAU National Championships as well as a third-place finish at the Junior Volleyball Directors Association National Championships. She also contributed two seasons as an assistant coach within the Academy.
Salow has worked as a coach and counselor at several collegiate camps, including those at Wisconsin, Georgia, Marquette and UNC Wilmington.
During her playing career with the Badgers, Salow played on three NCAA Tournament teams. She made an immediate impact as a freshman in 2005 and guided UW to the Elite Eight. As a sophomore in 2006, Salow helped the Badgers to the Sweet 16 and then, in 2007, her junior season saw them host a regional after being ranked as high as No. 5 in the nation. Her first three seasons in Madison saw the Badgers win 26 matches in each campaign and post a combined 48-12 record in Big Ten play.
Salow received her bachelor's degree from Wisconsin in 2010, where she majored in community leadership and family, consumer and community education. She is a graduate of West Delaware High School in Manchester, Iowa, where she was an all-state volleyball player and set the Hawks’ single-season records for kills and aces.
