Cal Beach Volleyball Coach Owen Monroy

Owen Monroy

Monroy returns to the Bay Area after a year coaching in the Big Ten at Illinois under head coach Kevin Hambly, where he helped the Fighting Illini reach the NCAA Sweet Sixteen in 2015. He previously spent two years at Saint Mary's College (Calif.) where he worked with both the indoor and beach volleyball programs. Serving under former USA Men's National Team coach Rob Browning on the indoor side and beach volleyball Olympic silver medalist Mike Dodd, Monroy rounded out an already impressive list of mentors in the sport. While at Saint Mary's, Monroy helped develop the newly formed beach program, which was ranked in the top-10 nationally during both years he was on staff.

Monroy was a volunteer assistant with the Penn State indoor program in 2012, helping the Nittany Lions reach the NCAA Final Four. His start in collegiate coaching came at Westminster College (NAIA) in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he served as the top assistant for two years. Monroy also has experience coaching in the USA Volleyball High Performance program as well as numerous clubs. 

A 2008 graduate of Messiah College in Grantham, Pennsylvania, Monroy earned first team all-conference honors after leading the Falcons to the 2008 NIRSA Division II National Championship. He also guided Messiah to three Mid-Atlantic Conference Championships. Monroy returned to his alma mater in 2013 as the men's associate head coach and guided his team to a perfect 23-0 record and the Division II NCVF National Championship.
