Q&A with Ole Miss Head Women’s Volleyball Coach and CAC Alumnus Steven McRoberts ('88)
A CAC “lifer,” Coach Steven McRoberts attended CAC from PreK until graduation in 1988. After graduating from Harding University in 1993 with a degree in Kinesiology, he returned to Mustang Mountain to coach volleyball, basketball and golf for two years. He went on to get a master’s degree from Henderson State and serve as the head volleyball coach at multiple universities. Currently in his 22nd year of collegiate coaching, McRoberts is the head women’s volleyball coach for Ole Miss. We sat down with him while he was on campus to discuss his CAC experience, his coaching and his faith.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by campus and speak in chapel! It was fun to hear stories of your time at CAC! What are some of the things you are most thankful for when you look back on your experience here?
The biggest thing, looking back on CAC, was definitely the relationships. I made such good friends here that have carried on with me now for 40 plus years. We still keep in touch. Being in a class of 65 people and knowing pretty much every single person in our class and knowing most of the people two years ahead of us and behind us – that’s a really cool thing.
I also learned a lot from the coaches. I noticed the joy that the teachers and coaches had when they came to work and it made me want to be a coach. I saw those coaches come in and how much they enjoyed it, and I thought, “I want to do something that I enjoy coming to.”
