The 2015 season ended with the Scots holding #10 position in the country. Kyle was awarded the 2015 Volleyball Coach of the Year award for the ISCC Region IV B and he was the ISCC Female Sports Coach of the Year.
McCall believes that promoting a positive, dedicated, and consistent approach helps produce the best results in his athletes.

Combining talent, discipline and consistency, McCall has achieved excellent results and sets high expectations for his MCC student athletes both in the classroom and on the court.

He has coached/directed volleyball at a variety of levels, youth through collegiate and adult. McCall has coached players who have gone on to play at NCAA Division I schools in The Big 10, MAC and Pac 10 conferences and several players who have played professionally internationally.

Assistant Coach: Shari Mayner
Shari Mayner started her college coaching career with the Scots in the 2013 season. Shari came to MCC with an exceptional recommendation from Head Coach Kyle McCall and she brings a wealth of experiences to the program. Together they have created a family atmosphere and a student/athlete balance for the players they recruit to MCC. Since the Scots qualified for the 2015 NJCAA Division II Volleyball Tournament, Mayner's first and foremost goal is to continue to return each year, as well as continuing to cultivate a hardworking student- athlete culture within the athletic department. She holds a high level of expectations for the team in the gym, as well as the classroom.
Mayner has been playing volleyball since 1996 and continues to play in leagues and tournaments throughout the year. She coached men’s and women’s volleyball at the high school and club level for 12 years and now puts in her time as site director for juniors' tournaments. Her solid and varied background and experience is paying dividends for the MCC players and staff. Outside of her volleyball life, Shari likes to cook, bake, and spend time with her husband, Andrew, and her rescue dog, Ellie.
