By ODU Athletics
NORFOLK, Va. – Old Dominion University volleyball head coach Fred Chao has hired Adam McLamb as an assistant coach, Chao announced on Friday.
“Adam is a great addition to our staff. He brings back strong ties to the area, and has spent the last four years working with a fantastic staff at Buffalo, successfully turning around that program,” Chao said. “He has a tireless work ethic and will be an asset in every aspect in this building process.”
McLamb spent the previous four seasons at Buffalo, helping orchestrate an 11-win improvement from 4-25 in 2016, to 15-13 in 2017 and 18-11 in 2018. The 18 wins was the most wins for the program since 2013, and fourth place finish in the MAC was the best in school history.
“I am extremely thankful to Fred Chao, Ragean Hill, Wood Selig and ODU athletics for this opportunity to be a part of building the women’s volleyball program from the ground up. It is an exciting time to be a Monarch and the chance to work with Fred and Becca to create a program at ODU was impossible to pass up,” McLamb said. “I look forward to making Monarch history every day we step into the gym and looking forward to hitting the recruiting trail to find future Monarchs!”
McLamb joined Buffalo after spending one season at Chattanooga, working with their pin hitters and instructing the passing game while aiding in speeding up the team’s tempo.
Before moving to the collegiate level, McLamb coached juniors for the Coastal Virginia Volleyball Club of Virginia Beach, Va.
As a student-athlete, Adam played club volleyball at both New Hampshire and his alma mater - Radford. As a setter, his UNH team claimed the NCVF Division 1-AA National Championship. McLamb was named a First Team All-Tournament performer.
