Buddy Gallemore

Head Women's Volleyball Coach


Charles "Buddy" Gallemore was announced as the head men's and women's volleyball coach in June of 2015, making a homecoming after being raised in Southwest Virginia.

Gallemore most recently led the women's volleyball program Midway College, a member of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) located in Midway, Kentucky. In his one season guiding the Lady Eagles, he guided the volleyball program to its highest win total since the 2011 season. While the year concluded with a loss to KIAC regular-season champion Asbury, the squad made history by recording the program's first post-season victory in the modern era (2007) with a 3-0 win over Cincinnati Christian in the KIAC tournament.

Midway also logged a regular-season, five-set win over BC's Appalachian Athletic Conference opponent Milligan—a team the Lady Rams were defeated by twice in straight sets last season.

Gallemore continued the development and growth of the Midway volleyball program during the offseason and gained six commitments for the 2015 season.

While taking the helm of two programs is a lofty commitment, Gallemore is used to the year-round grind. His coaching experience extended beyond just volleyball at Midway, as he served two seasons with the softball program—being an assistant coach in 2014 and the head coach in 2015.

Prior to Midway, Gallemore served in secondary education from 1998 to 2013. In addition to being a physical education and health instructor, he spent 14 years as a softball coach and eight years as a volleyball coach.

Gallemore is a 1993 graduate of University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky—which was Cumberland College at the time—where he earned a B.S. in education with specialization in physical education and athletic training. He also played a role in the development of the varsity volleyball program during his time as a student.

The new role for Gallemore brings him full circle, as his coaching career began with an assistant position with BC's volleyball program from 1994-95. He also gained a specialization in health sciences from Bluefield during his time with the college.

Gallemore also holds a M.A. in sport administration from Concordia University, which he completed in 2012.
