Otterburne - There will be a new, or not so new, face to the men's head coaching position this season as Providence Athletics announce the promotion of assistant coach Cody Quiring to head coach of men's volleyball.
Athletic Director Scott Masterson announced that the University has hired Cody Quiring as the head coach, replacing himself. Although the season is set to start later than normal due to the pandemic, head coach Cody Quiring has already been recruiting and finalizing his roster for this fall MCAC season.
Cody played volleyball at Briercrest College. During that time, he earned three ACAC Conference medals, two CCAA national medals and was named to the ACAC All-Conference team before coaching. Cody then started coaching here with our Junior Pilots for a number of years then became assistant coach for the past three seasons and now has taken on the role of head coach of the Pilots.
Scott Masterson, Athletic Director, had this to say, “We are very fortunate to have someone of Cody’s experience, caliber, and character, taking over the men’s volleyball program. I have really enjoyed working with him the last three seasons and I know that the team will really respond well to his leadership. I am excited for what he will bring to the team and for the future of the program!”
Cody takes over the head coaching role with a lot of experience. He has twelve years of coaching experience, including three years as assistant coach here at Providence for the men’s volleyball team as well as assistant coach at Briercrest college in the ACAC. Cody has also been involved with the Junior Pilots program for a number of years. As an assistant coach, Cody has earned two silver place MACA finishes and one gold medal finish in 2018.
Cody shared his excitement on taking over this new role by saying, “I am extremely humbled to take on the role as head coach for the Providence Pilot’s men’s volleyball program this year. I have a deep passion for the game and to create a space for young men to grow in character and skill, on and off the court.
I have been fortunate enough over the last 12 years of coaching to learn from some incredible volleyball minds who serve as mentors to me as I continue to be a student of the game. I am looking forward to the challenge of molding the men’s volleyball program into a recognized and competitive program amongst the MCAC and the CCAA.
I have become extremely familiar with the program, school and league over the last number of years while assistant coaching alongside Scott Masterson. Scott has done a fantastic job with the program to date and I look forward to carrying on that tradition of excellence both on and off the court."
Congratulations Cody! We are looking forward to having you as our head coach of men’s volleyball!
