They have had eleven head coaches since the team's inception in 1974.[3] In 2000, under head coach Pete Waite, they appeared in the NCAA Division I Championship Match. In the 2007 season, they ranked third in attendance among all Division 1 volleyball programs, averaging 5,050 fans over 18 matches.

Kelly Sheffield is the current head coach for the women's volleyball team. He is a former head coach of Dayton (2008-2012) and Albany (2001-2007).
