John Dunning (born November 6, 1950) is an American volleyball coach who was the head women’s coach at Stanford University (2001-2016) and the University of the Pacific (United States) (1985-2000). In 32 seasons of collegiate coaching, he guided his teams to five NCAA championships – second most of any Division I women’s volleyball coach – and compiled an overall record of 888-185 (.828).[1] He is one of only two Division I college volleyball coaches to have won NCAA championships at two different schools.[2]

Early Years[edit]

Before taking the position at the University of the Pacific, Dunning taught math and coached both basketball and volleyball at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, California.[3] His volleyball teams compiled a record of 283-32 (.898) and won six CIF-Central Coast Section championships as well as a California state championship (1980).

In 1980, Dunning founded Bay Club, a USA Volleyball junior club. His 17-and-under team won the national championship at USA Volleyball Nationals in 1984.[4]

College Coaching[edit]

University of the Pacific (United States) (1985-2000)[edit]

At UOP, Dunning led the Tigers to two NCAA championships (1985, 1986), a runner-up national finish (1990), five Big West Conference championships and 16 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances, where his teams compiled a postseason record of 43-15.[5]

Dunning was named Big West Coach of the Year four times while at UOP and was inducted into the University of the Pacific Hall of Fame in 2007.[6] He coached 16 All Americans at UOP, including two-time Olympian Elaina Oden and 2008 Olympian Jennifer Joines.

Stanford University (2001-2006)[edit]

In 16 seasons as Stanford’s head coach, Dunning guided the Cardinal to three NCAA championships (2001, 2004, 2016), a 58-13 record in the NCAA tournament and seven national championship match appearances.[7] He was inducted into the the AVCA Hall of Fame in 2011, chosen the AVCA National Coach of the Year in 2001 and 2016 and shares the NCAA Division I record for coaching in the most women’s volleyball championship matches (10) with Penn State coach Russ Rose.[8] Dunning announced his retirement on January 9, 2017.

Dunning coached 52 AVCA All Americans at Stanford, including four-time Olympian Logan Tom, who was a two-time AVCA National Player of the Year at Stanford, two-time Olympian Ogonna Nnamani, winner of the Honda-Broderick Cup in 2004 as the NCAA’s top female athlete, and two-time Olympian Foluke Akinradewo, the AVCA Player of the Year in 2007 and the “Best Middle Blocker” at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Coaching Education[edit]

In 2011, Dunning partnered with three-time USA Olympic volleyball coach Terry Liskevych and Penn State University women’s volleyball coach Russ Rose to create The Art of Coaching Volleyball (AOCVB), an educational organization that teaches coaching methodology through clinics and online resources.[9] Since its founding, AOCVB has put on 43 clinics in 31 cities and created an online library with more than 3,000 video tutorials.
