New Coach In Charge

David Gannon

Truman volleyball welcomed a new head coach for the first time since 2009 as David Gannon took over for Ben Briney. The former University of Idaho assistant became a head coach for the first time after previous stops at Idaho, Weber State and Mesa (Ariz.) Community College.

Gannon coached at MCC while still in school at Arizona State, then in 2014 took a position at Idaho as their director of volleyball operations. He became an assistant coach at Weber State in 2015, and while on staff there had nine players named all-conference in the Big Sky Conference. In the spring of 2019, Gannon returned to Idaho as the top assistant coach and recruiting coordinator, where he coached five all-conference players; three in 2019 and two in the spring of 2021.

In his first season the Bulldogs had six victories, including two during the opening weekend at the Union University Tournament against Lane College and Florida Tech, and two during the Midwest Regional Crossover against Kentucky Wesleyan and Lake Superior State.
