|Position:||Associate Head Coach|
Meagan Schmitt returned to her alma mater in the spring of 2014 to become Associate Head Coach of Cal’s sand volleyball program.
Schmitt was a two-time Pac-12 All-Academic selection during her tenure as a defensive specialist for the Bears. She was a team captain in 2010 and helped Cal make its only two Final Four appearances in school history in 2007 and 2010.
Immediately after graduating from Cal with a degree in American Studies and a minor in education, Schmitt became a volunteer assistant coach for Loyola Marymount’s indoor team. She was promoted to full-time assistant the following year.
When Loyola Marymount debuted its sand volleyball program in 2013, Schmitt became a full-time assistant coach for that program as well. She helped lead the Lions to a No. 8 final ranking in 2014 and twice led Loyola to the AVCA Sand National Championships. She also helped produce two AVCA San All-Americans.
Schmitt is an accomplished sand volleyball player herself, having achieved a AAA rating from the California Beach Volleyball Association for each of the past three years.
