BALTIMORE, MD Johns Hopkins Director of Athletics [Alanna W. Shanahan]( announced the hiring of Matt Troy as the university's head volleyball coach today.  Troy returns to Johns Hopkins after serving as the head coach at Mary Washington for the last six seasons; he had previously been the head coach at Johns Hopkins from 2010-12 and will officially return on February 11.   "We are thrilled to welcome Matt Troy back to Johns Hopkins to lead our volleyball program," Shanahan noted.  "He has a proven record of success over a period of nearly 10 years and his passion for and love of Johns Hopkins was evident throughout the interview process.  He has a demonstrated ability to identify individuals who can compete at a high level both in the classroom and on the court and we look forward to the leadership, guidance and mentoring he will provide our student-athletes as they pursue their academic and athletic goals."   Troy posted a 133-57 record at Mary Washington and led the Eagles to three trips to the NCAA Tournament and one Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) title.  His 2016 team posted a 31-4 record, claimed the program's first CAC championship since 1991 and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals.  He also guided Mary Washington to the NCAA Tournament in 2015 (first round) and 2018 (second round) and the Eagles won at least 20 matches four times in his six seasons.   During his first tenure at Johns Hopkins, Troy quickly turned a solid Blue Jay program into a Centennial Conference power.  He compiled an overall record of 73-21 (.777), including a 54-9 (.857) mark in his final two seasons.  Johns Hopkins posted a 27-3 (.900) record in Centennial Conference regular season action and claimed the first two Centennial titles in school history (2011, 2012).  The Blue Jays made the program's first two appearances in the NCAA Tournament under Troy's direction in 2011 and 2012 and the 29 wins the 2012 team amassed remain a school single-season record.   Collectively, Troy has earned four Coach of the Year honors with one selection from the Centennial Conference (2011) and two from the CAC (2016, 2018).  He was also the 2016 AVCA North Region Coach of the Year.   "I would like to thank Alanna Shanahan, [Kelsie Gory]( and the entire search committee for this tremendous honor to once again lead the women's volleyball program at Johns Hopkins University," Troy noted.  "My family is excited to return to a place that we have always considered home. I'm looking forward to getting to know the team and working together as we write the next exciting chapter in the history of the Hopkins volleyball program."   After leading the Blue Jays to the 2012 Centennial Conference title, Troy accepted the full-time head coaching position at Mary Washington.  At the time, the head coaching position at Johns Hopkins was part-time.   Previously at Johns Hopkins, Troy coached eight players who earned All-Centennial Conference honors and the 2012 Centennial Player and Rookie of the Year.  He also coached three AVCA All-Americans, three AVCA All-Region players, the 2012 AVCA Regional Rookie of the Year and four CoSIDA Academic All-District selections.   Troy graduated from West Virginia University in 2002 with a bachelor's degree in physical education and health. In 2009, he completed his master's from West Virginia in athletic coaching education.   Troy and his wife, Melissa, have four daughters:  Alexis, Kamryn, Emily and Brooke.
