Her grandmother is Carol Jean Bordsen, who was head volleyball and basketball coach at Yuba College from 1962-1985. Her mother is Thea Bordsen Post, who was head coach of Yuba's volleyball team from 1986-2005. The two elder Posts are in Yuba's Athletic Hall of Fame.
Kari Post was a star volleyball player at Sutter Union High in Northern California. A setter, Post earned CIF Northern Section MVP honors and helped Sutter to four consecutive league titles and three section championships. She earned a scholarship to West Virginia University and was a 4-year starter for the then Big East Conference Mountaineers. She finished as WVU's No. 3 all-time leader in set assists and graduated with a bachelor's degree in 2011.
Prior to PCC, she served as an assistant coach for one season at Citrus College (2012).
Barbone said, "We are excited about the potential that Coach Post brings us. Her family roots might be in Yuba, but she is happy to make PCC her new home. Kari is in tune with the policies and procedures of the district and the CCCAA, which will make her transition to head coach very smooth."
