Entering his 21st season at Kansas in 2018, Bechard has led the Jayhawks to a 374-240 (.609) mark, including a 152-38 (.800) record since 2012. In all, the hall-of-fame coach has taken KU to the 2015 Final Four, won the 2016 Big 12 title, earned Big 12 Coach of the Year four times, and overseen nine All-Americans during his time at KU.
Entering his 21st season as head coach of the University of Kansas volleyball program and 34th overall, Ray Bechard has led the Jayhawks to unprecedented success on the court and in life. During his 1,000-win career, victories have been the product of a goal but not the goal itself.
Jocelyn Adams was named Texas Southern University’s third volleyball head coach in June 2011. She wasted no time in turning the Texas Southern Lady Tigers volleyball program into a competitive force within the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
The Lady Tigers won three SWAC West Championships (2013-15) and have finished no less than third place since the scheduling format changed to allow all SWAC teams to play each other beginning the 2016 season. TSU finished the 2016 and 2017 seasons as SWAC Tournament Runner-Ups and advanced to the tournament semifinals in 2018.
Joe Sagula, one of the most successful coaches in college volleyball, completed his 28th season at Carolina in 2017. UNC’s winningest volleyball coach in history, Sagula has won seven ACC championships and led UNC to 14 of its 18 NCAA Tournament appearances.
The Tar Heels are 591-323 under Sagula, a .647 winning percentage. Sagula is 794-446 (.640) over a total of 37 years as a Division I head coach, with 11 regular-season and six conference tournament titles.
Sagula has the most ACC wins of any coach in history with 320, and his seven ACC titles ties for the most all time among the league’s coaches.
Lindsey Devine was announced as the head volleyball coach at The University of Alabama on Dec. 18, 2018.
Devine arrives in Tuscaloosa following a successful 16-year stint at East Tennessee State as its all-time winningest coach. Under her tenure, 28 players earned all-conference accolades, including three Player of the Year, three Libero of the Year and two Freshman of the Year award-winners.
During the 2018 season, she was named the Southern Conference Coach of the Year for the second time in three years after leading the Buccaneers to a regular season conference title and its highest win total (28) since 1983. ETSU earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, the first team in Southern Conference history to do so, marking back-to-back postseason appearances for the Bucs.
