Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass announced on Dec. 27, 2017, that Steve Aird is the new head volleyball coach at Indiana University. A two-time NCAA champion as an assistant coach at Penn State, Aird is an elite recruiter who has spent the last four seasons successfully turning around the Maryland program as its head coach.
Jaime Gordon is in his 17th season as the head volleyball coach at Morehead State. He has led MSU to four Ohio Valley Conference regular-season titles in the last nine years and nine 20-win campaigns in the past 13 seasons.
Gordon has also taken on the role as Interim Director of Athletics, taking over for Brian Hutchinson, who accepted a position as Director of Athletics at Lincoln Memorial.
Brandon Rosenthal recruits volleyball players to be a part of a legacy, not just a program.
As Rosenthal enters his 16th season as the head coach of the Lipscomb volleyball team he wants to leave a legacy that will not soon be forgotten. In other words, he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
The 2017 season did not go as planned for Rosenthal and his Bisons as they finished 16-13 overall and earned the No. 4 seed in the ASUN Tournament with an 8-6 record. It marked the first time since 2007 that they didn’t finish in the top three. They defeated No. 5 North Florida 3-0 in the opening round before falling 3-1 to eventual tournament champion, No. 1 Kennesaw State.
Darling, who also serves an an English professor at Gannon, is the longest tenured and winningest head coach in the history of the Gannon volleyball program as he begins his 13th season in 2019.
The program looks very different than it did when he arrived in February of 2007. Darling took over a team that posted single-digit victory totals in consecutive seasons prior to his arrival and engineered a turnaround that includes the current run of ten straight 20-win seasons and NCAA tournament appearances. That run includes the Lady Knights’ first-ever NCAA Division II Final Four appearance, first-ever conference championship, two trips to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen and dozens of postseason awards.
