Fountain-Fort Carson is turning to a familiar face to take over the volleyball program. Athletics director Jared Felice tweeted out Friday that Nicole Johnson has been tasked with leading the Trojans as head coach.

Felice had nothing but praise for Johnson and her vast volleyball background.

"We are excited to have Nicole serve as our new volleyball coach," he said. "She brings a strong playing and coaching background from the high school and collegiate level that we believe will translate to the growth of our volleyball program."

Nicole has been an assistant at FFC for the last two seasons. Before that, she served as an assistant at Rockford University. Originally from Illinois, she played her collegiate volleyball at Eastern Kentucky.

She takes over for Sergio Rangel who served in the head coach role for two seasons. The Trojans were 8015 in 2016.
