J.T. Wenger

New UTA head volleyball coach J.T. Wenger has seen a lot of collegiate volleyball over his career.

A former star at the University of California, Los Angeles, Wenger has made assistant coaching stops at his alma mater, the University of Colorado, and Michigan State. On Jan. 25, Wenger became the seventh head coach in UTA volleyball history.

Wenger is a two-time Thirty Under 30 selection by the American Volleyball Coaches Association, which honors the top young coaches in the sport.

"Upon visiting the UTA campus, it became clear that athletics are a priority for this University and there is tremendous and contagious passion in the athletic department," Wenger says. "I look forward to beginning the next chapter in UTA volleyball by developing great student-athletes and great people."

Wenger takes over at UTA for Diane Seymour, who served as head coach from 2004-16.

"We are thrilled to open a new era of UTA volleyball under J.T. Wenger," says Jim Baker, director of intercollegiate athletics. "J.T. brings a wealth of experience, has a passion for sport, and has the vision to take the program to unprecedented heights."
