While completing work toward his degree, Burdette spent the 1996 season as a volunteer assistant coach at Ohio State. The Buckeyes went 27-6, finished third in the Big Ten and advanced to the NCAA Regional Semifinals.
Burdette also played club volleyball for the Ohio State men’s team from 1990-93, as well as for the Buckeyes’ varsity team from 1989-90. He was team captain and a First Team All-Big Ten pick in 1993, helping lead his squad to a Big Ten Championship, a MIVA Championship and a No. 2 national ranking.
He went on to serve as head coach of both the men’s and women’s club teams at OSU, guiding the women to a semifinal finish in the 1997 National Collegiate Club Volleyball Championship and the men to consecutive Sweet 16 finishes in the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association Volleyball Championships.
A native of Silver Spring, Md., Burdette graduated from Ohio Dominican University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art and Visual Communications. He got his coaching start at the high school level at Bexley High School in Columbus, Ohio, where he was the freshman coach in addition to being a junior varsity and varsity assistant from 1993-95.
