The La Salle Athletic Department announced today that Matt McLaughlin is the new Head Varsity Volleyball Coach.
Matt has over 18 years of volleyball experience including over ten years as a high school volleyball coach. Matt has four Volleyball State Championships while he was at Moeller High School, two as a player and two as a coach.
"With Matt in the building as a teacher, and his playing and coaching experiences, he is an ideal choice for leading this team to new levels," says Athletic Director Brian Meyer. "I look forward to watching him coach up the players to his expectations and look for him to grow the program as a whole."
Matt has a long history with volleyball including playing volleyball at Moeller. That experience continued as a club volleyball player at St. Louis University. After returning to Cincinnati, he continued his volleyball career coaching at Moeller for almost ten years and at Ursuline for four years. He also coached in the highly competitive Cincinnati Attack club volleyball program for 11 years. In addition to coaching volleyball, he is actively involved professionally as a member of the OHSBVA Board since 2014.
"I am very excited to be joining the La Salle community as the Head Varsity Volleyball Coach," says Matt. "I love watching players develop and succeed and am looking forward to continuing and building upon the strong traditions of the La Salle volleyball program."
In addition to coaching, Matt will be an English teacher at La Salle starting this fall. When asked about the family name, he stated "my brother, Pat, is the Head Varsity Football Coach and I couldn't be more excited to be coaching and teaching with him."
Matt lives in Maineville with his rescue dogs Yoda and Ollie. He is a member of St. Margaret of York parish.
