Zach Weinberg joined the Tennessee Tech volleyball coaching staff in February 2018, and will begin his third season with the program in 2020. Prior to coming to Tech, Weinberg was an assistant coach at UNLV, where he helped the Runnin' Rebels to the program's first-ever at-large bid and win in the NCAA Tournament in 2016. UNLV finished 24-8 that season with a program-high No. 33 finish in the national RPI. "Tech volleyball is so lucky to have recruited such an exciting recruiter in Zach," said head coach Jeannette Waldo. "As we build this program, recruiting is going to be such a huge piece of the puzzle, and Zach is the perfect fit. He is a great communicator and easy to connect with in so many ways. He will make our staff and our team better instantly both on and off the court." Weinberg worked heavily with team defense, liberos and recruiting at UNLV, and the team ended both the 2016 and 2017 seasons ranked within the top 70 programs in the country in total blocks. His 2017 recruiting class received an honorable mention honor from PrepVolleyball. Weinberg earned his master's degree at Northwestern State University, where he worked as a graduate assistant coach and video coordinator for the volleyball team. The Lady Demons captured the program's first-ever Southland Conference tournament championship and NCAA Tournament berth in the 2014 season. Senior Mackenzie Neely was named the Southland Conference Tournament's MVP and received all-conference first-team honors. During Weinberg's time at Northwestern State, the Lady Demons also ranked with the top 40 teams nationally in four statistical categories: opponent hitting percentage, aces per set, digs per set and blocks per set. He received the opportunity to become the head coach of Maccabi USA's women's youth and open women's beach volleyball teams from April 2015 to January 2016. Maccabi USA is a not-for-profit organization that fields athletic teams composed of Jewish athletes. Weinberg hand-selected athletes from throughout the continental United States and guided both teams to gold medals at the 2015 Pan American Maccabi Games (an Olympics equivalent) in Santiago, Chile. Weinberg served as a student assistant coach at his alma mater, Ohio, after working as a student manager from Dec. 2008 to Sept. 2009. The Bobcats won three regular-season and three MAC conference championships to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Concurrently, he was the president, head coach and four-year starter for the Ohio men's club volleyball team. Weinberg has additional head coaching experience from his tenure at Camden Catholic High School in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and the ALETA Aces Volleyball Club in Athens, Ohio. Zach and his wife, Paige, were married June 30, 2018.
