Kandice Kelly, a former Roundup High School and Montana State volleyball standout and University of Montana assistant, has been hired as the new head coach at North Idaho College in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
Kelly is the daughter of Rocky Mountain College head coach Laurie Kelly.
She will be replacing Colleen Frohlich, who resigned in December after one season because her husband accepted a job in Arizona. The Cardinals placed fifth at the national tournament last season after winning conference and Region 18 titles.
