Max Gelman, Sports Editor


Former Loyola Chicago men’s volleyball coach Shane Davis has been hired to lead Northwestern, the University announced Monday.

Davis spent the past 12 years coaching at Loyola and is coming off back-to-back national championships at the helm of the Ramblers. He amassed a 265-88 record at Loyola and won four Coach of the Year awards.

“I am humbled and honored for this opportunity to lead the Wildcats volleyball program,” Davis said in a news release. “Northwestern is a world-class institution with an extremely proud and supportive athletic department in the city I have called home for more than half my life.”

The hire comes two weeks after NU announced former coach Keylor Chan would not return to NU for the 2016 season. The Wildcats went 14-17 in 2015, their first losing record since 2008.
