Senior Director of Athletics Brian Curtin announced in July the hiring of Jon Roberts as the Monks’ head women’s volleyball coach.
One of the most respected high school and club volleyball coaches in the region, Roberts is the first full-time head coach in the 38-year history of the SJC women’s volleyball program.
Roberts comes to Saint Joseph’s after serving as the head coach of the Scarborough High School girls volleyball program for the last eight years. Roberts also coached for the Maine Juniors Volleyball Club for eight years and took on the role of Volleyball Technical Director for the club in 2015.
“Saint Joseph’s has made a significant commitment to the success of the volleyball program with the creation of this new position,” added Roberts. “There is a great history of successful sports teams on campus and I am excited to build the volleyball program up to that level.”
At Scarborough, Roberts led the Red Storm to a pair of Class A Maine State Championships, five State Championship appearances, and trips to the postseason on eight occasions in as many years. He was recognized as the Maine Volleyball Coaches Association Class A Coach of the Year twice with a pair of Portland Press Herald High School Volleyball Coach of the Year honors.
“We are excited to have Jon join our staff,” adds Curtin. “He brings a thoughtful, professional approach to his coaching and has a genuine desire to help students grow and help the sport grow.”
