Dan Rhodes enters his second season as an assistant coach at Coastal Carolina.
In his first season with the CCU volleyball program he helped guide the Chanticleers to the Big South Conference tournament championship match. The team finished with a 14-14 overall record but was 10-4 in conference play. It was the first 10 win conference season since 2009. Rhodes has coached one player to first team all-conference honors, two to Big South all-freshman team honors and one to Big South all-academic team accolades.
Rhodes was part of a staff that took a team that had finished 5-9 in conference play and lost in the first round of the Big South Conference tournament in 2011 and guided them to 10 conference wins and a trip to the Big South Conference tournament championship match in 2012.
Rhodes came to Coastal after serving as an assistant coach for the men's volleyball team at Saint Francis University (Pa.) for two seasons.
Prior to coaching the Red Flash, Rhodes was the head coach of the Charlottesville Volleyball Club 16s in 2010. Rhodes also coached the Jefferson Volleyball Club 18s to a fifth-place finish in Virginia in 2009.
Before taking the head coaching position at the club level, Rhodes served as an assistant coach at Northridge Academy during the 2007-08 season when Northridge was named the Los Angeles City champion. He also served as a recreation assistant at Mason Park from 2006-08.
Rhodes played collegiately at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) and was a 2008 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-Conference selection. He earned American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Division I-II National Player of the Week honors in his career. Rhodes was just the fourth player in collegiate history to record 40 kills in one match in the rally scoring era and is just the 11th player in CSUN history to record 1,000 career kills. In 2007 and 2008 he was selected to try out for the United States National team.
Rhodes earned a bachelor's degree in social science in sociology from CSUN in 2008 with a minor in general business from the College of Business and Economics. He received an MBA from Saint Francis University (Pa.) in 2012.
