Head Coach Lindsey Buteyn
Lindsey Buteyn was named IUPUI's eighth head coach in February 2019 after serving as the program's interim head coach at the end of the 2018 campaign. She originally joined the IUPUI volleyball staff as an assistant coach in March 2015. Since joining the staff, Buteyn has served as the recruiting coordinator and has worked with blocking, middle and right side positions. In addition, she's long been responsible for academic oversight and opponent scouting since her initial hire.
As interim head coach, Buteyn won both matches at the helm of the IUPUI squad, beating Youngstown State and Oakland to close out the season. During the 2018 season, Butyen helped IUPUI record the third-most blocks in a match as the Jaguars finished with 18 blocks against Milwaukee.
Coach Buteyn has largely been credited with the success of the middle-blockers Abby Boatman and Haley Hoffman as well as right side Kori Waelbroeck. In 2017, IUPUI had one of its best blocking seasons finishing with the most blocks in school history (304) and the second-most blocks per set (2.45). Individually, Boatman finished with the second-highest block total in school history with 142, followed by Hoffman at fourth (128) and Waelbroeck at ninth (106).
Boatman finished her career with the Jaguars with 343 total blocks, the fourth-most in school history. Waelbroeck sits in fifth in total blocks with 290.
Buteyn also helped Waelbroeck to one of the most successful offensive careers in IUPUI history, finishing her career with 1,197 kills.
In her second season Buteyn helped guide Logan Walling to a record-breaking senior season, in which the middle blocker completely shattered the program record with 425 total blocks for her career.
In her first season with the Jaguars, Buteyn helped guide the program to a 21-10 overall record with a 12-4 finish in Summit League play. That season, IUPUI picked up four offensive and defensive Player of the Week awards, along with the Summit League's Player of the Year award, given to senior outside hitter Kaitlyn Hickey. Hickey would go on to earn both an AVCA All-Region selection and an AVCA All-American honorable mention. IUPUI led the Summit League with a 2.51 blocks-per-set average in league play and also ranked number one in kills-per-set overall (13.84)
Buteyn spent two seasons (2013-14) as the Graduate Assistant at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, La., where she helped the team to an NCAA Tournament berth and two appearances in the Southland Championship Match. Buteyn primarily worked the middle hitters and also assisted with recruiting and scouting.
Prior to Northwestern State, Buteyn was the volunteer assistant at Tusculum College and she also spent three years working at the Capital Volleyball Academy in Madison, Wis.
A Wisconsin native, Buteyn played collegiately at the University of Alabama helping the Crimson Tide advance to the NCAA Tournament three times. As a middle blocker, Buteyn was a four-time Academic All-SEC selection and upon her graduation from Alabama in May of 2009, she played overseas in Austria for a year.
