ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – UCF Volleyball head coach announced that he has promoted Brian Doyon to the position of associate head coach. Doyon will oversee skill and player development for the Knights.
“Brian has been instrumental in the development of players, their skill set and the system we play by,” Dagenais said. “This promotion for him is very well deserved and is commensurate with what he brings to our program on a daily basis. He is a major reason why we are sitting in the position we’re in.”
In his second season, Doyon has played a prominent role with structuring the UCF gameplan. Through his work with Dagenais and associate head coach Jenny Maurer, Doyon has helped the Knights reach heights unseen before in program history.
Last week, UCF featured in the American Volleyball Coaches Association for the first time in school history. The Knights were tabbed No. 25. Doyon’s defensive work has guided the Black & Gold to numerous records and milestones. Against Cincinnati earlier this season, UCF broke the school record for block assists in a match with 41.
“I’m honored and humbled to be given this opportunity to help continue to grow this amazing program,” Doyon said. “Todd has always been so supportive of all of us to run our respective areas of expertise. Jenny has done such a first-class job at finding and bringing wonderful student-athletes to UCF. TJ has been such a great addition to our team. He makes everyone around him better every day. Brad Stricklin, in his role as our sport administrator, has been our biggest supporter and has helped our program continue to grow. We are fortunate to be in a program that not only has the support of our administration but the enthusiasm of a family culture.”
Prior to joining UCF, Doyon served as the co-head coach for USA Volleyball’s Collegiate National Team, along with Dagenais. A coach who has built his career on pushing athletes to reach their potential, Doyon was the head coach at Montana for two seasons and an assistant at Utah for six years before that posting.
“Successful athletic programs are a true reflection of the leadership,” Doyon continued. “Danny White has built a nationally recognized athletic program at UCF where coaches are supported and encouraged to excel in every aspect of their sport to produce outstanding student athletes. The best part of my day is to work with such accomplished, driven, and motivated student athletes who strive to be the best on the court and in the class room.”
With the promotion, Maurer will now oversee recruiting and program operations.
