Program record and history
The University of Alabama first fielded a women's volleyball team in the fall of 1974. Since then the Crimson Tide has been to the AIAW & NCAA Tournament 7 times, and won the SEC Western Division titles in 2000 & 2004. After being the head coach for 15 years Judy Green retired after the 2010 season. Alabama then hired Ed Allen to take over the program as they transitioned back into Foster Auditorium, their original home. In 2013, three years into Allen's tenure, the Crimson Tide returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007.
