Coaching staff

Head Coach: Paul Dill

Since his graduation from Bates College in 1989, Coach Dill's involvement in volleyball has spanned both sexes, nearly all age groups, and two continents. Paul looks to continue the building of what has become one of the premier Division III volleyball programs in New England.

Coach Dill has worked with the MIT volleyball program since he became an assistant coach in 1992. He served as assistant coach for three years for both the women's and men's varsity programs before being named Head Coach in 1996. Since then, Paul has guided the women's team to six NCAA Tournaments and two ECAC Tournament Championships.  In 2007, the Engineers posted a record of 36-3, won five tournament championships, qualified for the NCAA Division III National Championship Tournament for the fourth time in six years (making it to the Sweet 16), and finished with a New England regional ranking of No. 2 out of 73 teams.

In 2004, Coach Dill took of the reigns of the men's varsity program at MIT as well, and within two seasons duplicated his success with the women's program.  Over the past five seasons, he has led the men's program to the seven best seasons in program history with records of 23-7, 23-9,  27-6, 25-11, 25-12, 31-8 and 29-7.  The team has gone to seven straight post season tournaments, won NECVA New England Titles in 2007 and 2011, and has been ranked as high as #6 on the National Poll.

Paul coached the University of Connecticut men's volleyball club team while earning his MBA degree, served as manager of the Bates College women's team as an undergraduate, and has coached the men's open division of the Bay State Games.  Paul also co-coached the England Women's Junior National Team for four years, and was an assistant coach for a Division I National League women's club team in the English Volleyball Association.  As a player, Coach Dill has captained the Bates College team, the University of Connecticut team and several USAV teams.
