Kelly Richardson joined UT Arlington Volleyball in July, 2014. Richardson came to UTA after spending six seasons as head volleyball coach at Southwest Baptist University in Missouri where she ranks third all-time in wins.

Richardson attended Missouri State University on a volleyball scholarship where she played setter. After completing her 2000 season at MSU, she transferred to Evangel University where she continued as a setter and right-side hitter. Richardson broke six school records while attending Evangel, and was the first player in school history to be named All-American.

Richardson was also named All-Conference and All-Region all three years at Evangel, and was named National Player of the Week three times. Richardson graduated from Evangel with her B.S. in physical education and a minor in health.

After graduating from Evangel, Richardson became the head volleyball coach at Republic High School where she led her first team to a third-place finish in the Missouri State Championships. This was Republic's first district win in school history and first appearance in the Missouri state tournament. Richardson had two All-State players and sent four players from her 2005 squad on to play college volleyball. Republic made it to the district semifinals in 2006. Richardson had players attend Missouri Southern State University, Drury University and College of the Ozarks.
