Head Coach Gwen Egbert joined the Tiger staff in Spring 2013.  Egbert brought a decorated resume to Doane following an outstanding high school coaching career at Papillion-LaVista and Papillion-LaVista South High Schools. She was named the Lincoln Journal Star Coach-of-the-Year in 2002 and 2012 while earning the Omaha World Herald honor in 2003.

At the high school level, Egbert posted a record of 700-223 with six Class A State Championships, including titles each of the last three years. Her teams also took runner-up honors on seven occasions. Egbert's squads made the championship game of the Class A Tournament in 13 of their 17 appearances.

Prior to the start of her coaching career, Egbert played volleyball at the University of Nebraska under Coach Terry Pettit. After two years at Kellogg Community College in Michigan, Egbert transferred to Nebraska where she was a member of two Big 8 championship teams. She was selected a team captain her senior year and was named First Team All-Big 8. The team also made their first NCAA National Tournament appearance that year, going 1-1 in the tournament.

During her two years at Nebraska, the Huskers went 56-16, winning both the regular season and tournament conference championships. Following the completion of her playing days, Egbert got her start in coaching as a graduate assistant for Nebraska. The team made a second straight appearance in the NCAA National Tournament that season.
