JACKIE GRANGER Assistant Coach

Jackie Granger was hired as an assistant coach with the Georgetown University volleyball team in April 2018.

"The Hoya Volleyball program just became much better with the addition of Jackie Granger," Rens said. "Jackie is one of the most competitive BIG EAST volleyball players I've coached against. We are just thrilled to have her on the sidelines because she has so much to give. Jackie was very well trained and has a keen eye for the game which will benefit our players greatly."

"I'd like to thank Toby for the opportunity to continue my coaching career here at Georgetown," Granger said. "I've known Toby for a while now, albeit from the opposite side of the court, and have always admired his coaching style and work ethic. I think our personalities and coaching styles complement each other extremely well. It's surreal to come back and coach in the BIG EAST and I look forward to helping bring Georgetown volleyball back to the top of the BIG EAST standings."

Granger had a stellar playing career and was one of the most prolific offensive threats in NCAA history. A three-time American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Honorable Mention All-American, she amassed 2,386 career kills which still ranks No. 14 all-time in Division I history.
