Searching for someone to turn around Jacksonville State’s volleyball program which historically has seeb much better days than it has in the recent past, JSU Athletics Director Warren Koegel turned to someone who has experience, and the hardware to prove it.
“We are very excited to have Coach Gamble lead our volleyball program,” Koegel said. “He is a proven winner with almost 800 career wins, and he has been successful throughout his coaching career.”
Terry Gamble has 18 years of colligate coaching experience. As Koegel notes, his overall record of 799-236 is quite impressive and will make his first Gamecock victory a milestone.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity at Jacksonville State University,” Gamble said. “This program has been successful in the Ohio Valley Conference in the past, and I hope we can return back to the top of the league.”
Gamble comes to JSU from McNeese State but has spent most of his career in the junior college ranks where he’s won three national championships. He’s twice been the NJCAA Coach of the Year and in 2006 was voted the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) National Coach of the Year.
Gamble was inducted into the NJCAA Volleyball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2007.
