Kevin Hambly was named the sixth head coach in the history of the program on Jan. 30, 2017.He begins his second season at Stanford and his 10th overall as a head coach in 2018. He came to The Farm after spending eight seasons as the head coach at Illinois, where he led the Illini to six NCAA regional appearances and the 2011 national title match. Hambly compiled a 178-86 overall record while in Champaign.
Hambly guided the Illini to the national semifinals in 2011 for the first time in 23 years before advancing to the NCAA title match for the first time in program history. Illinois also garnered its first No. 1 ranking in school history after opening the campaign 20-0. Following the season, Hambly was named the Volleyball Magazine National Coach of the Year. He coached 12 AVCA All-Americans to 19 honors during his time with the Illinois program.
Jaime Gordon is in his 16th season as the head volleyball coach at Morehead State. He has led MSU to four Ohio Valley Conference regular-season titles in the last eight years and eight 20-win campaigns in the past 12 seasons.
His program has won seven straight OVC Team Academic Awards and has won numerous Team Academic Awards from the American Volleyball Coaches Association. The Eagles were also named recipients of the OVC Team Sportsmanship Award in 2010 and 2011.
Gordon guided the Eagles to their fourth straight OVC regular-season title and second NCAA Tournament appearance in 2013. He also reached his milestone 300th career collegiate coaching victory during the season.
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 2015 season saw Lipscomb win both the ASUN regular season title with a 13-1 record and the ASUN Tournament with a three-match sweep. A loss to UCLA in the first round of the NCAA Tournament ended the season. Lipscomb finished 23-9 overall.
Darling is the longest tenured head coach in the history of the Gannon volleyball program as he begins his 12th season in 2018. 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. He engineered a turnaround that includes the current run of nine straight 20-win seasons and NCAA tournament appearances. That run includes the Lady Knights’ first-ever NCAA Division II Final Four, first-ever conference championship, two a trip to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen and dozens of postseason awards.
