Chris Meyer had a desire to get back into coaching.

So when Jefferson City volleyball coach Curt Yaeger stepped down after the fall season, the decision to return to the court after an extended absence was easy for Meyer.

“It never was out of my system,” said Meyer, who was introduced as the new Lady Jays coach Wednesday afternoon. “It just was not an opportunity I could pass up when he decided to step down.”

Meyer’s situation is unique in that her husband, Shane, is Jefferson City’s girls basketball coach. With two young children, that made it hard for both to coach at the same time. But they’ve decided to try it out.

“And now we’ve decided that as they’re 3 and 6, we’ll be able to balance both of these, and really balance that,” Meyer said.
