Division 3


Dills involvement in volleyball has spanned both sexes, nearly all age groups, and two continents. With the womens team at MIT, he has built what has become one of the premier Division III volleyball programs in New England.
Dill has worked with the MIT volleyball program since 1992. He served as an assistant coach for three years for both the MIT mens and women's varsity programs. Named head women's coach in 1996, Dill has guided the Engineers to 11 NCAA post-season bids, two ECAC Championships and the three NEWMAC titles.
Entering his 23rd season, Dill is currently ranked 16th out of over 400 active Division III coaches in the nation in overall winning percentage (.748), averaging 27 wins and single-digit losses per season during his career. He has never collected fewer than 20 wins in a season and has five 30-win seasons under his belt, lifting his career record to 584-188. A three-time AVCA Division III New England Region Coach of the Year, Dill has also been named the NEWVA Coach of the Year three times. He also collected NEWMAC Coach of the Year honors in 2002, 2016 and 2017.
Dill began duplicating this success with the MIT mens team which he coached from 2004-2017. He led the mens program to its first NCAA Tournament appearance in 2014 and an overall record of 328-132. Before coaching the MIT mens squad, Dill directed the Emmanuel College mens squad to a 12-8 record in its first season of varsity competition. He also co-coached the England Womens Junior National Team for four years and was an assistant coach for a Division I National League womens club team in the English Volleyball Association. Other experience includes coaching the University of Connecticut mens volleyball club team while earning his MBA, serving as the manager of the Bates College womens team as an undergraduate, and coaching the mens open division of the Bay State Games.
