Alisha Alexander | Sports Information Director

LEWISTON, Idaho – LC State Volleyball Head Coach Katie Palmer announced the addition of Shann Mack to the Warrior Volleyball staff as Assistant Coach and Recruiting Coordinator, bringing in an assistant coach with 12 years of high-level experience.


“I’m thrilled to introduce Shann Mack as Assistant Coach and Recruiting Coordinator,” Palmer said. “I’ve known Shann for a long time and have great respect for him as a person and coach.”

Mack is a familiar face to Palmer as he served as an assistant coach at the same time Palmer was Associate Head Coach at NCAA Division I Montana State University in Bozeman. While at Montana State, Mack supported middle blocker training, opponent scouting reports and in-game offensive schemes. Together, Mack and Palmer helped guide the Bobcats to their first Big Sky Conference tournament appearance since 2014.

“Shann has an incredible skillset that allows him to teach the game and connect with student-athletes. Our time together at Montana State allows us to hit the ground running as a staff and will benefit our student-athletes immensely,” Palmer said. “I can’t wait to get started with him by my side.”

Prior to his stint with Montana State, Mack served as the Three Forks High School volleyball head coach where he compiled a 117-36 overall record and a 64-6 conference record.

His tenure included a 50-game win streak against conference opponents, five consecutive district championships, a fourth-place finish at state in 2011, and a top-six finish in 2017. Mack trained 15 all-state and 20 all-conference selections.

“I am so excited to join the coaching staff and community at Lewis-Clark State College. I could tell very quickly during my visit that LC State is an amazing place, filled with special people,” Mack said. “Coach Palmer has a clear vision and I’m excited to help aide her in achieving the goals she has set forth for the program.”

Mack is a sixth-generation Montanan, and a third-generation Montana State Bobcat. He received his bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Montana State University. Coaching runs in his blood. His uncle, Mick Durham, was the head men’s basketball coach at MSU for 16 seasons. He grew up with a love for the developing student-athletes.
