In 2012, Ulmer was honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) as a recipient of the "Thirty Under 30" award, recognizing outstanding up-and-coming coaches in the profession throughout all levels under the age of 30. Ulmer was one of 10 coaches recognized from Division I, the highest level of collegiate volleyball.
Before his promotion, Ulmer spent two seasons with the program as a volunteer assistant.
Ulmer came to Long Beach from Carthage College, where he was a setter under head coach LJ Marx. While at Carthage, he led the team to two National Championship appearances, and was named a first-team D-III All-American as a senior. He finished his college career as the Carthage career leader in both assists and service aces.
While at Carthage, Ulmer also worked as an assistant coach for the women's team, serving for five years from 2002-2006. He also worked as the club coach for TNT Volleyball Club from 2003-07, and has served with the Cal Juniors club team while in Southern California, helping the team earn two All-American selections on the way to a bronze medal in the Junior Olympics.
Ulmer completed his Master's degree in education in 2008 at Long Beach State. He graduated from Carthage in May 2007.
