HUNTINGDON, Pa.- The Juniata athletic department has named Glenn DeHaven as head coach of the men's volleyball program. DeHaven officially begins his duties on January 1, 2017.
DeHaven comes to Juniata after serving as the head women's volleyball coach at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J. since 2012. While there, he posted a record of 132-50 and was a four-time Empire 8 Coach of the Year. DeHaven's teams won three E8 regular season titles, one Tournament title, and made two NCAA Tournament appearances. He had two players named Rookie and Player of the Year and many others named to All-Conference Teams.
"We are extremely excited to welcome Glenn and his wife Brittany back to Juniata," said Juniata Athletic Director Greg Curley. "Glenn's familiarity and success as a student-athlete at Juniata, along with his impressive record of competitive success at Stevens, certainly stand out, but more impressive is the level of academic success his program has achieved in an incredibly challenging academic environment. His commitment to developing the whole student-athlete while pursuing competitive excellence ushers in a new and exciting chapter in the proud and storied tradition of our men's volleyball program."
From 2010-2012, DeHaven assisted the women's volleyball team at Transylvania University in Lexington, Ky. The Pioneers were back to back regular season champs during DeHaven's time and posted their best regular season (26) and conference win totals (8) in 2010.
DeHaven returns to College Hill after a four-year playing career on the men's volleyball team from 2003-2007. He was a four-year starter, a two-year captain, and was a part of four Molten Championship squads. Upon the completion of his playing career, he was an assistant for the Eagles from 2008-2010.
DeHaven graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Sports Management from Juniata. He and his wife had their first child in July 2014, a daughter named Aria Grace.
